Calibre's Updating Process - In Need of an overhaul

Hi Team,

Firstly i wanted to say I absolutely love Calibre and think the work that has been done is absolutely amazing. One thing that I believe is lacking is an update system for Calibre.

Plugins, etc you can download using the plugin tool - it applies the update, you restart. Is this not possible to use the same system for the main updates? Wouldn't it make for a nicer process.

For those of us on a Mac, it's a long process - download the dmg, drag the dmg into the applications folder and restart (after you click Apple's warning message!).

Thoughts?

Might have already been done, see the Related Tools sticky Calibre Update/Install App for OS X

In the past, Kovid has expressed reluctance to automate installs.
