8.1 will be the first community update to provide a separate download for the patch tool,
which allows you to do in-place updates to an existing 8.0 install.
Shortly after CR2 is cut, I will provide a link to a separate and different patch file
download, along with some instructions for how to use the update with the patch command. I
would appreciate everyone trying this out, and reporting back any issues.
