Binary diff upgrades

April 11th, 2005 by Scott Ullrich

Thanks to Colin and Bill’s help we are steadily moving towards a binary diff upgrade system. The systems code is all written and we’re in the process of testing, etc.

This new update system reduces our updates size by 80%. For example our previous upgrade was about 7 megs in size but the same upgrade using the binary diff system is only 50K! Thats quite a space savings!!

I should also mention that if your not a unix geek you may want to avoid upgrading for atleast a week while we work the kinks out.

Please don’t post technical questions or off-topic comments. It is far more likely that your questions and concerns will be addressed effectively through one of our support channels.
