Title: Upgrades
Post by: AvatharV on December 12, 2018, 08:08:18 PM
If you have a working 2.2.4 install, what is the best method for upgrading to 2.2.5, for example.

As I play with it, I really don't want to do a default install with every new release.

Apparently, I am blind.

I never noticed the upgrade patches at the bottom of the download page.. http://vmwaros.blogspot.com/p/download.html.

I guess my question would now be.. "How long is it for the patch to come out after a new release?"  "Do they get posted at the same time?"

I think you have to repeat from scratch every time a new distribution comes out

That's what I was afraid of originally, but it looks like there is a version patch listed below the main releases.

This is all new and I just got hardware that works.. so I am just starting to play with it.
