OpenOffice.org 2.0.2

OO.org 2.0.2 has been released (see http://download.openoffice.org/2.0.2/index.html). Are there any plans to update Portable OpenOffice.org to that version?

Thanks!
Rick

Sigh

For about the hundredth time:

- There is ALWAYS a plan to update
- It depends on available time so it usually takes a couple days (unless it's a major update in which it takes longer)
- Don't ask for an update the same day one comes out, it's not nice to be demanding of someone making stuff for you for free

I'm sorry if it was felt my question was a demand. I am a software engineer myself and know that it takes time to create new products. Also, I just noticed the 2.0.2 update when visiting OpenOffice; it isn't a site that I regularly visit. I didn't realize that it was just released today.

A bit harsh

Sorry if my reaction was a tad harsh. But you have no idea how many emails I've gotten from people demanding a new version within minutes of an update of the underlying software. It's made me a bit hyper-sensitive to the issue.

WinPenPack

Portable OpenOffice 2.0.2 (English) is available for download from WinPenPack.com.

@John: how does your launcher work?
I remember that the first versions, the only one I tried, makes portable OOo by setting up the %USERPROFILE% variable. The mine, XOpenOffice.exe, makes portable OOo by rewriting a line in the "bootstrap.ini":

UserInstallation=path/to/user_settings

Bootstrap

I've been using bootstrap.ini as well

Can an existing POOo install be updated?

I have Portable OOo on a stick and OOo 2.0.2 on the PC at home. Can I just copy the files across to update the Portable installation? What files need to be retaines?
