I think that the forum software should be able to do autonomous updates within a minor series, i.e. 1.0 ->1.0.1 ->1.0.2, however, not for 1.1 or 1.2. Might be useful for bugfixes, etc. This saves a little time downloading and uploading files. Security could be ensured by means of simple md5 or whatever to verify integrity of the file downloaded by the system. What do you guys think?
