Without any fanfare we changed our approach to updates this year. We have already released four updates. These have been released online for our users to download. The next update will be supplied on CD as it will contain a full system backup. We have found that CD distribution such as this provides our customers with peace of mind should their computer crash and they need to reinstall from scratch.
The CD based update will be followed by more online updates. The way we release these is such that our users can skip updates and catch up easily.
We made the change in response to requests from our users at our last round of user meetings.
