Import From Any Release

There have been complains from users that they can import settings between final releases only. The mechanism of the import is easy and well described therefore we should enable users to be able import settings from any user dir.

Current status

There are two options how to "import" userdir now

  1. copy the old userdir into new location (or use --userdir)
  2. let the userdir be imported during first start

Solution

Provide plugin for NetBEans IDE that will offer following functionality

  1. Import Old Settings action in Tools menu
  2. user can select old userdir
  3. import with AutoUpgrade.java

If the userdir version is not recognized simple copy is offered to user. Some directories won't be copied - var, config/Windows2Local, etc...
