Icaros LiveUpdater released

After some (hopefully enough) testing, Icaros' LiveUpdater 1.5.1 is finally available for download. This little package is intended to replace the current, limited Updater script of Icaros Desktop, improving on it in many ways. Once installed, LiveUpdater will be available in your AROS:Tools/LUPD directory, and you'll be able to install Icaros updates in many ways: the current CD-based one, and the new ISO- and Internet-based paths. Here's how to install it.

IMPORTANT! You need Icaros Desktop 1.1.1 already installed! I haven't tried with 1.1.0 and I don't warrantee it will work at all.

a. download wherever you like, for instance RAM:T
b. open a shell
c. enter these commands
unzip RAM:T/
cd icaros-liveupdate-151
execute installer
d. wait some seconds and reboot

(you can also simply double click on the archive icon to extract files, and doubleclick on the Installer one to install)

Since it won't be added to AmiStart automatically, you'll have to run it from the Tools/LUPD directory with Wanderer.

> Download LiveUpdater 1.5.1 (1,5 MB, zip file format)

When Icaros Desktop 1.1.2 update will be available, LiveUpdater will download and install it for you.
