    Installation notes

    If you are running from source, the targeted version of Python is now 3.10.4, so you should update that, and all the project dependencies.

    If you are running the desktop app, the settings file is now stored in different location. While the program will automatically move your current file, it would be prudent to take a backup of it first:

    • Windows: C:\Users\YOUR-NAME\vasl-templates.ini
    • Linux/Mac: ~/.vasl-templates.conf

    If you are installing on top of an existing installation, you should delete the directory $/data/default-template-pack/extras/kgs/.

    If you have configured cached images for Chapter H notes (using VO_NOTES_IMAGE_CACHE_DIR ), you should delete the folder and remove the config setting (since it now always happens, and the cached images are stored in the standard location). If you want to pre-build the cache, you can do that by opening http://localhost:5010/load-vo-notes-image-cache in a browser.
