  • Download the update and start the installation.
  • New configuration files will always use the same format as the old ones so your files will not become invalid or incompatible.
  • New features and parameters will be introduced with a default value which you can change after the update.
  • Old parameters will be removed automatically after the update and will be announced with a warning message. Provided the loaded configuration is not saved by you, the changes will not be permanent.
