I've tested this out pretty thoroughly, and all of my old presets are working! I did not delete my installation, so the presets are exactly the same without the need to resync. I'm so grateful Moog was able to get out a patch that preserved my presets! I have no idea how old my last backup is.
This is a good cautionary tale for everyone. On computers we tend to be pretty prodigious about protecting out production environment.

Update: Reader Rafael pointed out that the there are a few minor bugs in this version. All presets are now categorized, and the Plucked and User categories are sometimes blank. Flipping back and forth to a different category will get them back!
Now that we can all enjoy this update, here is the promo for the new MIDI Out IAP.
