These are two separate issues, the upgrade to 0.6 proper
and the choice of skins to use.

Regarding the version upgrade, i am going ahead to update
from the pre-release that Incubator people were previously
advised to use.

For those who already have a local Forrest installation,
then you have choices:
1) Download a complete new release version from the mirrors.
2) Do some SVN magic to update your existing working copy.

Would someone please help with instructions for SVN.
At release time, we created branch "forrest_06_branch"
and tag "forrest_06" from r54198.
