I don't know how hard it would be to code.
Current process:
download new folder
copy terminals.config to it
delete old folder
change shortcut on desktop to point to new version's folder

I don't know if any new terminals.config info that may be in a new version would not be there since I have to move it from version to version on up.

1.6f does exactly that.

i ran into many issues with proxy's and such, so i decided for a less intrusive way of doing the updates. for now I simply open a http terminal window and let you know of the update, it is up to you if you want to do the ugprade or not.

that's cool. does it automatically pop up if an update is available.
I understand that proxy issues might be a nuisance unless you programmed the use direct connection, automatically detect settings, use proxy config script, use IE settings & use the proxy server ip and port specified. it's another chunk of code i guess. I just mainly get concerned if the copy over of a new xml file overrides anything or if you change the formatting of the settings in a newer version if it's not going to transfer properly.
