Upgrade warnings.

If you are using Mac OSX, make sure to save your ZeroBrane Studio system settings (Edit | Preferences | Settings: System) before upgrading as those are saved inside the application folder and will be lost during the upgrade. As an alternative, you can move those system settings to user settings (Edit | Preferences | Settings: User) as those are not affected by the upgrade process.

If you are using Windows or Linux, made any modifications to the files in the distribution, and plan to install the upgrade into the same location, make sure to save your changes before proceeding.
