How do I update Spot/Leopard?

Most of the time, if you have "Options/Use Automatic Version Update" selected, then the updates are done automatically.

If you decide to do a clean install (or if the most recent release requires a fresh installation), you need to delete or uninstall everything in the installation directory. On unix/linux, if Spot resides in the directory /home/you/spot, the spot directory should be deleted. From there follow the instructions for a new installation given at the Spot software page.
