How are WinJS apps updated/redeployed on the users system?

    Question

  • I have some questions regarding updates:

    1. Given the user has already installed/downloaded the app from the appstore how would he be notified about an update?
    2. Would the updated files be transfered to the user in a binary diff download or would the whole application (zip) transfered again?
    3. What happens if the app is currently running? Will it be asked to save its state and terminate?

    As described in talk 905, appx is using delta update using the blockmap. Well done MS!:)
