You don't have to re-install the templates after upgrading.

Just to update, Aleron has the new file but Time-Warner still has the old one. In many ways it would probably be safer if letter-version revisions had different filenames, to avoid this kind of situation in future.

They should have really change the filename to 2.0.7a becuase the mirrors take some time to all get in sync (24 hours for some, less for others). It would be better to get a File Not Found error rather than downloading something you think is 2.0.7a but isn't. /me shrugs

Any chance of patch releases having a new filename or not?
