Additionally, this version will migrate all your plug-ins to the plugins directory. No more ‘pgn’ files and putting our theme dlls in ehome. This should be fairly transparent but, if you get an error during the install related to this migration you will just need to re-install your theme plug-ins via the configurator. All settings should be retained.
