Updating the system

I’m sorry if this has been covered somewhere, I can’t seem to find it (unless I’m missing something).

Is there anyway, besides a full re-install, to update haiku, or parts of haiku? something like Windows Update (though better implemented). I know Package Management is being worked on, but will that cover the system as well as apps?

I am very interested in this also. I am testing TuneTracker on Haiku so having a good way to update to the newest nightly builds would be fantastic.

Yes, all of this will be handled by package management, and this is why it is so important for R1. We want users of R1 to be able to update their systems. There are many blog-posts on package management to read for the interested.

The speech from BeGeistert might be interesting as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNZQQM5zU-Q (Haiku Package Manager (1of 5) )
