The first LinuxMCE update is out to handle MythTV and schedules direct. There's a thread about it here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=2300.0
I wanted to start a thread for people to comment on suggestions for improving the update mechanism in general.
Well looking at the user experience I think some of the wording in the on screen messages is a little ambiguous. Also the update dropped into the console for a lengthy period... which is fine for all of us here but a non-technical user might find it disconcerting. I think it might be a good idea to have a progress bar (or possibly have it handled through the Manager UI)
