Best Practice for Updates of Ground Control

I was wondering, is there a procedure or set of steps (even a subset of the install instructions) to update Ground Control on a RaspberryPi?

I am guessing that going back and re-installing Kivy and everything isn’t required. But what is?

Updating the Arduino firmware seems pretty straight forward, just wanted to get down the minimal steps for the Pi.

If there is interest from others, I will update the wiki. … Thanks upfront for the assistance.

You’re right, once Kivy is installed, you’re done with that.
For each new release, I use the ‘Source code (.zip)’ link and unzip to my home folder. I usually save the .zip of the previous release, just in case.
Your settings are found in ~/groundcontrol.ini so they should survive intact.
