Installation over prior versions

Unless, you have customized your own themes and you want to keep them beside the new themes, it makes sense to deinstall the old version before installing the new one.

Explanation: The data subdirecotires are now compiled into the binary, so they are not needed anymore and won't be installed with the new release. But if they are still there, the built-in data path is ignored and the physical path on hard disk is used instead.
