Current Release - 2.6
Note that the 2.6 updater (or installer for that matter) can not be applied to an existing 2.5 installation, you need to install 2.6 in a separate directory, but there's no requirement to uninstall your existing 2.5 instance before (or after) doing so.
For more information on upgrading from 2.5 to 2.6 see this page.
Once 2.6 is installed you can copy your existing 2.5 xml configuration files to the new 2.6 instance, but you should take note of the changes in files installed by the installer compared to your files (for example security.xml, logging.properties, export_html.css etc), as some of these files have changed since 2.5 and you may need to apply these changes to your 2.5 versions before they can be used in 2.6. Generally the files will work as is when copied from 2.5, but it may provide a more optimal experience if you check for differences.
The interoperability installer contains the bundles required to integrate with third party applications, e.g. Pathway, ProClaim, etc.
The installer and updater will accept a directory name as a command line parameter. For the installer the parameter will be used as the default for the target directory to install to, but more importantly, for the updater, if the directory points to an existing Weave installation it will automatically update it without requiring any user intervention.
