    I\'ve wondered, should I click on the icon \'Update To Latest Version\' regularly or is this handled in a nightly update?

    It appears that the latter is true as the JSP Plugin option appeared last week without me having to update.

    I would like to know for sure.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    It should update daily/nightly by default. To verify that this is indeed the case with your machine, type the following command in shell as root:

    crontab -e

    If you see an entry containing \"/scripts/upcp\", automatic updating is in place. To exit, hold down the control key and type \"x\".

    For those of you who hate vi you can always do a

    export VISUAL=\'pico\'
    crontab -e
