iTerm Upgrade Loses Preferences & Bookmarks

UPDATE: iTerm version has been released which is intended to fix this. I haven't tested it.

I just upgraded to iTerm version from on Mac OS X Leopard, and found that iTerm had forgotten or lost all of my preferences and bookmarks.

I fixed it by;

  1. quitting iTerm
  2. going to ~/Library/Preferences/
  3. moving net.sourceforge.iTerm.plist to net.sourceforge.iTerm.plist~
  4. copying iTerm.plist to net.sourceforge.iTerm.plist
  5. starting iTerm
