this is a bugfix release, all extensions/settings are not needed. why not just download the zip release (fro those windows folks) and extract it over the current installation ? huh ... is it sooooooo complicated to automate ?

i don't know how software is managed centrally on managed on windows ... but it would certainly not be hard to write a 2 line shell script daemon which checks for updates on an internal server, get's it and extracts it (as for bugfix releases) ... hell, it's not rocket sience!
