I currently have 2.65 installed. I always try out each new version to see how well it has improved. And if it has improved enough for me I keep the downloaded folder that runs with out install. (Is what I am currently doing with 2.69). If it improves on things I really like, I install it. But I have always hating doing so since I lose all the addons and the theme I have. (I know I can just go back in the new install and go through all the add ons and check off, but I hate doing this). Is there a way for me to just get all my user preferences transferred over as is with out any tweaking from an older version of Blender to a new one?
Also wanted to know if there is a python script or an addon out there that will automatically save an image after it is done rendering. There are times when my render takes a really long time and is done late at night. Problem is sometimes my updates for windows comes in at night at times as well and with the auto restart of the computer I end up losing the rendered image as I sleep.
