[SUGGESTION (Sort of)] A XenForo 'Installation' package and 'Upgrade' package

    I don't like that vBulletin only has an 'Installation' package.

    It means we have to keep reuploading all files every time, which is pretty annoying if you can't unzip files at your website :(

    Okay, they provide a list of changed files, but 2/3 times the list in incomplete.

    Please XenForo Devs, provide an Upgrade and Installation package when Beta 2 comes out ;)

    Indeed, that would be cool :)

    Well, it's not that important, let's just say we want an easier way to update than vBulletin ^^

    I never did understand why there was never an update package for vbulletin, even free forum software like phpBB3 has an automatic update package!

    And I can't stand the way SMF does their upgrades, different strokes, different folks.

    Basically, what I want to see is that I don't need to upload files via FTP. All I need is only "one click".

    I recently installed SMF, the installer was literally two steps, I was genuinely shocked.

    Well, at the time, and even currently, a lot of shared hosts have memory and time limits set pretty low, which doesn't allow a lot of automatic updates. Don't know if it'd be possible with larger packages.

    Looks like a test is in order. Hmmmm.......

    How did your test go Carlos? SMF is really easy to install and patch.

    That automatic update package is used only from updating between version of the same serie where the changes are very minimal. Whereas to jump from a serie to another where the changes are huge, it is done manually btw.

    This would be most benefitial to everyone. I think wordpress has the best online upgrade system i have seen in a long time.
