Hello Ibrahim,

these commands list each configuration file shipped in a newly installed
package if a non identical file bearing the same name already exists, 
and let
you decide what to do.
Initially the new file has been installed alongside the old one, its 
name having
with the .new extension instead of .conf

Your choices are:

1. replace the old file by the new one. The old one will be backed up, the
suffix being changed from .conf to .orig
2. delete the new configuration file.
3. display the differences between the ols and the new file
4. use the application vimdiff (or gvimdiff in graphical mode) to 
display the
differences between the old and the new file and let you cherry-pick the 
you want to apply
5 Do nothing. Then you can deal with the differences otherwise or run 
dotnew or
gtk-dotnew later.

If you didn't customize the "old" configuration file, it is safe to 
replace it
by the new one.

I should probably include these explanation in the Slint HandBook...
