Hello - a question about the CTD update method. When a new CTD version gets published, what will be the method by which we get/install the upgrade? Does CTD automatically check for updates at startup? Will it automatically download and install itself (i.e. put the .exe in the same location as the current .exe) whenever CTD starts up in the presence of an internet connection, or will we need to take steps do download a new .exe and put it in the right place, as we did for .jar?

    CTD I think does check for updates, but will not update automatically. We just did a mini-release for a minor update to 4211 so you can test out the process with that.
