Well, I'm on Linux and just installing over the top of the previous version has always worked for me.

Wild cards in Search/Replace? You Betcha! and SO much more powerful than that. You can use "regular expressions" to do lots and lots of things that way.

Do a search on "regular expressions" or "regexp" on this forum (i.e. mobileread itself), or ask a specific question here (i.e the sigil sub-forum). I myself am but a novice regarding this topic so I won't presume to instruct you. But there are many resources available to those who can ask or search. Just sayin'!
