How to Keep Software Up-to-Date?

How to Keep Software Up-to-Date?

I currently have Intel Parallel Studio XE for Linux All
Tools (v2011 Update 2) installed and was wondering what is the correct
procedure to keep this product up-to-date?

Intel Parallel Studio XE for Linux was released on February
22, 2012. Since that time, several product included with Intel Parallel Studio
XE have been updated including C++, Fortran, Inspector, IPP, MKL,TBB, and
Vtune. Here are my questions:

1.
Why is Intel Parallel Studio XE for Linux All
Tools not updated to include the latest updates? When does Intel plan on releasing an update to
this product to include all the latest components?

2.
Are user who have this product installed suppose
to update each component individually or wait for an update to Intel Parallel
Studio XE for Linux All Tools to be released?

3.
Why has the Intel download website started
posting actual file names for some products instead of the more descriptive
names used in previous updates? A good example of this change is how the
current Integrated Performance Primitives for Linux latest update (7.319) is
listed as compare to the previous update (6.293).

4.
During a previous install of individual
components, I noticed that the Intel Inspector XE 2011 Update 9 did not include
a C shell script for setting the PATH and MANPATH variables as is usually
included in other products. What was the reason for this omission?

Thanks,

John

John,
Looks like this is a duplicate of what you also posted on the 'Download, Registration & Licensing' forum (http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=104859)
I'll follow up there.Hubert.
