Online Update of Extensions
Extensions are often improved over a period of time. That is, publishers ship new versions of the same extension with added functionality and/or bug fixes. Currently users must update their extensions manually, that is, find out where to get updates, obtain the updates, remove the old extensions, install the new extension. This feature will make updating easier. Users can run the update mechanism from the Extension Manager. A dialog will show available updates and the user will be able to choose which to install.
More particular information for this feature can be found in the specification at:
Currently the update mechanism completely replaces an installed extension. That is, the update is actually a complete new extension which could also be installed separately without replacing an earlier version of this extension.
