I found this problem might be that I upgrade the prefs.lua in 7.2.23 with my existing 7.2.21 prefs.lua, which missing a value for max_recent_files = 12.

I hope that there would be a better machenism on how to upgrade prefs.lua (or pointing on the upgrading hint), regarding the default or required values.

I compile ipe 7.2.23-1 under archlinux using AUR https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ipe/ with lua53
However, when I open or recompile a ipe file (a.pdf) there is an error reporting that:
