rpm/deb updates will need some manual steps to go from 0.11.0 to 0.12.0,
mainly for configuration and persisted state. But those steps are simple
enough. However, rpm/deb updates from 0.12.0 onward will be much more
easier than what currently exists (it is described in my PR) and will be
able to handle rollbacks which is a nice to have IMO.

I'll write up instructions in the docs for this soon.

+1. I would go for 0.12.0 with classic launcher deprecated, then remove it
entirely for 1.0
