Question about updates



  • This may sound silly but I have been asking myself this for a long time…
    Imagine that 0.97.0 is release, that is, full-release.
    Then imagine that after a couple of days we already have two updates, 0.97.2 and 0.97.4.
    Now the real question is: can we just upgrade directly to 0.97.4 or do we need to first upgrade to 0.97.2 and only then to 0.97.4?
    I have always loaded all the intermediate upgrades just to keep it on the safe side…
    But occasionally it could save some minutes if I could patch it only with the latest upgrade and that's why I'm asking ;-).
    Cheers



  • Anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but it is possible to simply upgrade to the latest release.  The updates occur via a tarball that blindly updates all of the files.  Whether this will change in the future and incorporate a "diff" process or something of that sort, I'm not certain.  Thanks!

  • All of this is temporary.  We have a very smart binary diff update system that will handle updating.  It's on our list to complete in the next couple weeks as we wind down from fixing bugs.



  • Sorry to keep this topic running but English is not my native language… ::)
    I'm still not 100% sure about this even after your comments on it ???.
    Simple question: if I have a WRAP 0.90 running on my box can I take the most recent 2..5 MB release update (let's say a 0.97) and update it without doing all the intermediate updates?

    Yes.  These are accumulative (think M$ service packs).



  • Geee, thanks Scott.
    That will definately save me a lot of time while upgrading my boxes ;).
    Cheers
