Upgrade warnings


Hi Devs-

I just noticed that we are displaying a warning (Attached) when opening v5 files with the new fill algorithm.

I like the idea of warning users that features have changed that will affect their boards. However, I'd like to put this into a more sustainable format. There are a number of previous changes (zone segments, edge cuts clearance, segment fills, etc.) that also change the file output when upgrading and would be good to warn users about.

Instead of a single dialog, what do people think about a list box of changes similar to the list box we use for Eagle import modifications? The we could add changes to the list box based on the file version we are opening.
