Is it possible to upgrade from MacTeX 2010 to 2011 without downloading the entire package for new?
I’ve tried starting the instructons for upgrading TeXLive at tug.org/texlive/upgrade.html, up to step 3 (so, I’ve duplicated
…/2011), but with the next few steps, I’m worried about confusing the MacTeX “TeX Distibution” system preferences pane, since I don’t know how it finds/builds its list of installed TeX distributions. I had hoped it would find the duplicated copy and allow me to switch to it (which would presumably cover steps 4–6), but it’s not seeing a 2011 distribution.
So… is it safe to proceed with those instructions, without breaking the MacTex preferences pane? Or is there some way one should handle things via that pane? Or is it best to just download MacTeX 2011 afresh?
