I have custom default and user .dat files that I use each time a new version is loaded. It would be helpful to store a revision number in those files so the software can test to make sure those files are the latest before using them.

The recent problem I had with the LGA round/square pads caused an error message was due to the .dat files I was using did not contain values for the new rounded pads. 

As a user we need some way to know when the .dat files we are using are outdated and need to be recreated.
