You can - though I would recommend creating a new directory each time
and unzipping everything there. Just copy your old character (pcg)
files... you can always unzip right over top of your old files, but
occasionally things break (we release fixes asap after that happens).

If you create your own custom data files, definitely back those up.
Assuming you've placed them in a new directory, PCGen will never
overwrite that directory so you don't need to worry about it
overwriting them when you install a new version.

The major hold up on the user manual has been the completion of the
GUI revamp. That will be done in a couple of weeks, so the
usermanual update should be soon after that. The Customise
documentation (data file syntax) is usually kept fairly up-to-date.

Yeah - at pcgen.sourceforge.net you'll see a link to "Bug/Feature
Requests". That will take you to a page where all the Bugs and
Features are listed.
I hope this helps!
