We're working slowly on these issues...
Unfortunately it's hard to live from just writing WPKG code and 
answering wpkg-users list - in other words, it'll take some time, as 
it's being worked on in spare time.

We plan to have these fixed somewhere at the beginning of August.

Not really.

Right now, we used to store WPKG settings in binary form (sort of). This 
means, that whenever we add new features, and settings.xml format 
changes, these binary settings are incompatible.

So if you upgrade, you have to add a config file, and that from the 
newest installer - it's not that pretty IMO.

Only from the version to be released in August, we will start to use 
another way of storing data - so it will be no longer necessary to give 
settings.xml generated by the newest installer. In fact, when we just 
upgrade, and don't want to change any options, we won't have to give any 
settings.xml file (now, it is mandatory).
