What is the proper way to update to PlayOnLinux 4.2 without loosing all of my resources (Windows packages), wine versions and my prefixes (virtual drives)?

The Mint software manager still shows the older version and doing an apt-get update doesn't work.
I'm guessing I need to backup all the previously mentioned and do a remove then install?

You don't need to backup anything (even if it never hurts ;) ), just go to the Download page and follow the Ubuntu instructions.

Thats all I did. Just upgraded this AM. Didnt have to delete or change anything. Just installed the new version.
