I had a quick (unscientific) look at the fop-user mailing list. According to my count we had 3 threads in the last 2 months related to config issues. In all cases it was due to an upgrade from 0.20.5 to 0.9x. This made me look at our 'upgrading' page. It does NOT(!) mention that the config file format has changed! Seems to me the easiest fix to all of this is to actually tell users that they also have to change the config file used with 0.20.5 when upgrading. > > J.Pietschmann Manuel
