Hi all,

Can we install 2.50 over the top of previous versions or do we have to uninstall and then install the newer version?



> Hello everyone,
> The Windows/Linux/Source distributions of Greenstone v2.50 are now
> available for download from our sourceforge page:
> http://sourceforge.net/projects/greenstone
> This is a major release that corresponds to the UNESCO Greenstone v2.50
> CD-ROM. It features many improvements to the core Greenstone software,
> including a new (and already very popular) PagedImgPlug plugin for
> processing sequences of page images, a new classifier that displays a
> collage of the images in a collection, provision for incremental updates
> of Greenstone in the future, and many, many other improvements and bug
> fixes.
> For this release UNESCO have translated almost everything into French,
> Spanish and Russian.
> The items in this release in English, French, Spanish and Russian
> include:
> - Unix and Windows installers
> - Greenstone interface
> - Greenstone setup scripts
> - Greenstone README file
> - Greenstone Perl module strings
> - GLI scripts
> - GLI README file
> - GLI interface
> - GLI help text
> This release also includes a very large number of improvements to the
> Librarian Interface tool. The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI) is an
> easy-to-use frontend to Greenstone's collection-building functionality.
> It provides a graphical, point-and-click interface that allows you to
> gather files for your digital library collection, assign metadata to
> them, and then design, customize and build your collection. The
> Librarian Interface comes as standard in all distributions (uncompiled
> in the source distribution, compiled in all the others). It is installed
> in a subdirectory of your Greenstone installation called "gli", and
> requires a recent version of Java to run (you will be told if you don't
> have this, and it is a free download).
> If you haven't already tried the Librarian Interface, now is a great
> time to do so. On Windows, a shortcut to the Librarian Interface is
> automatically added to the Greenstone Digital Library item on the Start
> Menu. On other systems, the Librarian Interface can be run by executing
> the gli.sh script in the "gli" subdirectory of your Greenstone
> installation.
> We want to ensure that this software works well for you. Please report

> lists.
> All the best,
