Thank you for getting back to me.
The upgrade instructions which we provide with our service packs specify which essential files we have changed. The bulk of the files contained in the patch are .css and image files to define the look and feel of the administration part.
We are providing the new_web.config file for reference to see how a blank setup of this version would look like. You have to merge the changes which we have made, and are listed in the upgrade instructions. I am sorry but the disabled="true" is set on new projects.
Thank you for the feedback on the upgrade process. I want to reassure you that we are working on a lot smother and easier process of upgrading, where we will eliminate the need for comparing files.
All the best,
the Telerik team
