    That changed in the core Zen Library. Although, as far as I'm aware, the first time you load it, it should load the my_zen_settings.py. However, if you've created you're own settings then it will create a file called user_settings.pickle. If that file exists, it basically won't load the my_zen_settings.py. I've not done extensive testing with how it handles different situations. Try deleting the user_settings.pickle and see if it loads it then. If not, then as long as you've still got your my_zen_settings.py file, we can convert to the user_settings.pickle file quite easily (let me know if you need instructions to do this, and I'll come up with some and post them somewhere useful).
    You can also add the my_user_settings to the zen_settings file, although that could be tricky, and isn't protected from updates.

    "Tricked", by the way, is a bit harsh - it said "there's an update to Zen Coding, would you like to update", and you said "yes". :)
