App Settings Serialize and Deserialize Question

I've written my own class with properties to store user settings to an XML
file in the user's application data folder.

I am faced with having to add properties to the class, but run into issues
when trying to read in the 'old' settings so I can add new ones, while
preserving the old ones.

It seems that the deserializer (SoapFormatter) doesn't like the fact that
the class now has additional properties.

What's a good approach to keeping the existing user settings while adding
newly defined ones?
