Well, you can easy move your projects, fileOut your objects and fileIn 
to the new image target.

Well. Are new images but, as other applications, this new versions 
aren't stable. You can use this new images for testing purposes, but i 
don't recommend you use the new versions of images, packages until are 
oficially stable. aren't oficially stable, but soon.

Use 3.8.1 and migrate your code to 3.9 when stable. Then, when 3.9 is 
oficially stable, work over 3.9 and test over 3.10/4

See you.
