Re: [ide-dev] A "releases/latest" URL in the IDE to ease upgrades?

And what about having such a URL listed in the available software sites by default, but disabled for automatic updates?

This + would allow user to "guess" how to enable update to latest major version if they want to, without changing the default behavior. Moreover, since the /latest URL wouldn't change between release (content changes, not UrL), it would allow to write some "universal" documentation to upgrade to latest version, instead of also requiring user to find out the name and URL of the latest release.
I believe this couple of changes would allow many users to be able to enable update to latest by themselves, without too big preliminary knowledge of Eclipse nor having to read stackoverflow.
