upgrade phpstorm 2016.1 to 2016.2

Hi! i am currently using phpstorm 10 and i am planning to update and download 2016.1. 

So my question is, when 2016.2 comes out, do i need to manually download the 2016.2 setup or the update will applied as a patch on 2016.1.

Because if the update won't be in the form of patch, i will wait for 2016.2 and download it instead of going for 2016.1 now.

Thanks :)

Hi there,

AFAIK it will be the same -- download full install.

What kind of problems are you having with installing from full installer?

Hello,

Yes, full download will be necessary as there is no technical possibility to patch between two major versions - the difference is way too huge.
