hi all,
i'm wondering what would be the best/easiest way
to transfer the settings from an older .conf file
after updating to the latest version - some
directives might be new, some outdated etc...
any suggestions?

I usually just open them both up together and move down through them adjusting the new one based on the old. Cut and paste for large sections. The order should be the same.

Back-up the old rename the new and restart.

but unfortunately it's for Windows only :(
