Migration Assistant In Ubuntu 9.04
When checking out a recent daily LiveCD of Ubuntu 9.04 (the Jaunty Jackalope), the migration wizard found in the Ubiquity installer now supports migrating files from an Ubuntu installation.
With Ubuntu 7.04 the Ubuntu Migration Assistant was introduced into the LiveCD installer to automatically transfer documents, pictures, bookmarks, and even the wallpaper from a Microsoft Windows installation on the hard drive over to Ubuntu. Two years later it's now beginning to work nicely if you want to transfer your documents and settings from an earlier Ubuntu Linux installation into a fresh Ubuntu installation.
Right now though the only option we were presented with is for transferring our Mozilla Firefox settings and bookmarks from an Ubuntu 8.10 setup into this latest Jaunty build. We had files in the various XDG user directories, but the migration assistant hadn't asked about transferring those files, the Ubuntu wallpaper, or anything else.
