the usual way to manage this in 4.7 and beyond is with hook_update() 
functions in your .install file. sometimes updates need some explaining, 
which i do in the commit message and in the readme file. you could also 
conceivably do a form_alter() on the update page in order to communicate 
stuff or gather settings.
