[Bug 1652432] [NEW] Installing new version may result in lost files

Hliaire Fernandes

Public bug reported:

As the user files are saved within the DrGep.App directory structure,
upgrading to a newer version may result in lost user files (the
MySketches and MyExports folders contents).

Installing newer version should be done as a merging installation. It
depends on the Archive software used to install Dr.Geo. I am note sure
yet how to overcome this issue.

First minimum step are
1. a WARNING file within DrGep.app
2. a warning notice in the web site, download page.

Any other ideas?
