Migrating 3.0 settings to 4.0?

I'm loving 4.0-- its really a huge improvement. The only problem is none of my settings transferred, and 4.0 doesn't appear to use the old settings scheme with xml files. For example, I created a color scheme called "bob", but can't find a file "bob.xml" anywhere in either my home directory or the 4.0 installation directory.

Is there any online FAQ about how to migrate my 3.0 IDEA settings to 4.0?

Thanks,

I have to admit I ended up re-installing 4.0 (without migrating the 3.0
settings - it sadly made a real hash of that) and with both 3.0 and 4.0
running alongside each other (on two machines) manually transferred my
settings across. This took a couple of hours - but it did make me learn
about a whole bunch of new fancy features that I would have otherwise
ignored!

Still - you'd have thought the upgrade process could have been a little
smoother. At least (thank goodness!) the keymap files are compatible - that
would have been real nasty!

Cheers,
