Maintenance updatesOccasionally the software is updated to introduce minor improvements. The resulting updated version is offered to licensed clients as a so-called maintenance update (or maintenance release) that can be downloaded here. At the time of purchase of a license always the latest available version is put on the client's CDROM. You should check the Build code of your present edition in order to see if you need to download and install the current maintenance update. For this you should verify the Build code that is shown in MapQTL's Help-menu's About-box and compare that to the Build codes in the MapQTL Release Notes. There you will be able to see if there is a more recent release available.
