All the materials I customized in Lumion 1.0 were wiped out after the update install.

So I retrieved my backed-up scenes (.spr & .sva) went back to 1.0, only to find that all my materials from ALLmy scenes were gone there too, even in the backups I copied to another drive. Does Lumion not save the materials with the scenes? Is there a way to retrieve them?

Your materials are saved besides your library object. In your mydocuments/Lumion/Library you will find your models that you imported. Then the 

'mymodel.mtt' is the material file of your model.

 

Anyone else have this problem?

Ok Thanks...From now on I will backup that directory in addition to the scenes.

Unfortunatelly, the mymodel.mtt was overwritten when I tried to edit the materials in the beta update. But fortunatelly, it's pretty quick to re-create all the materials in LumionLaugh

This is weird. I closed and reopened Lumion beta and the materials I re-created, as well as some additional models I imported were gone!

So I exited Lumion again and when I re-opened it, everything was back. Could this be a memory issue? (I have a 470gtx.)

Doesn't seem like a memory issue! But it still sounds scary to me. Are you logging in on a different user? Since your Lumion folder is in your mydocuements changing user will give you a different library/scenes.
