If you have used GreatNews for a while, you probably saw GreatNews upgrades data file format quite frequently when new version is out. It's not possible for me to regression test the conversion from every existing data file formats to the latest. So I decide to only test at most last month's versions. That message is to retire older versions and to guarantee there won't be bugs wipe out a user's 6 month old database during data conversion. When GreatNews hits stable builds in the near future, I will not need this message any more, as stable builds will definitely be included in conversion regression tests.
