I also found other conflicts on some libraries, now I don't remember well, probably with the next OS 3.2 it will be different ...
... even more different again ...

Don't worry Carlo, I've checked every single component of 3.1.4 against the older ones from 3.9 before I installed only a few of them. It's in essence the new 3.1.4 Kickstart and some libraries like workbench and intuition, but not more than maybe 1/3 of all files yet. Just the best of both worlds!

I think that you already know that you can make catalog subdirs for OS 3.1 or 3.9 instead of "sys" and then patch the preferences or other files, in case you want to use old AND new prefs programs.
