When TL2009 comes out will TL2008 be updated by running 'matching' tlmgr?
Norbert has already written something to try to update a TL 2008 into
2009 at install time. Perfection is not to be expected, though.
One can guess that new tlmgr will look at
That was my idea when I devised the .../2008 path, of course, but since
then it's become apparent it was a bad idea, precisely because it
complicates the yearly transition. In 2008->09, there will be quite a
few major implementation changes, like xz instead of lzma, but we can
hope that 09->10 will be smoother. Doing the best we can, but we're
just human beings.
Will be they the same?
2008 will be deleted from CTAN.
