    I've downloaded it and will install once I post this announcement.":O}

    I've been running it a while now, tested it in a few of my games...all is well with 4.1.9
    No apparent backward compatibility problems.

    Don't forget to backup your "resources" and "wine versions" directories... otherwise you have to download all of those Wine versions and Windows Packages all over again.

    What is the quickest way to update PlayOnLinux?

    It's a cake walk!
    Just go to PlayOnLinux and download the latest version to your "Downloads" file. Go to the file and click on it. It will auto "Update" your current version, if you have one installed, or just install if you don't. That it it your done and ready to roll again.

    OR if you prefer:

    Code:
    wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_precise.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install playonlinux

    Auto-update? Really?
    That is pretty easy. I thought that the old version would need to be un-installed first...

    Ooh code, how did you find that terminal code?

    Why at PlayOnLinux of course!

    No need to un-install or make any changes, she just updates herself!
