No.
That is up to the style author. It would be impossible for us to support the dozens upon dozens of custom themes.

Understand and maybe I should have been more specific but both are based on prosilver, with one mainly being a rename with color changes.

The idea I had was to copy the update folder in the auto updater like prosilver>newname. What I am not sure about is does the auto updater automatically account for all folders there or are other changes required?

Styles other than proSilver and subSilver2 need to be updated manually. It takes about 5 minutes to do -- check the Styles Dev & Discussion forum, there's a sticky posted there regarding the changes.

It would be a nice add to the auto updater to allow other themes to be compared to prosilver. I think this would be a simple addition as many themes are based on it and would be easily updated this way.

install/install_update.php has some experimental code to achive this (you would need to uncomment it - around line 1556) - the problem is to only include those styles derived from prosilver and subsilver2.

Exactly how do i manually update to 3.0.2? I have a heavily modded forum, and don't want to loose the mods.. Do i like go through the update stage, when it asked to merge files, just look and see what's changed/added and do it FTP? I'm confused...

I want to applaud the DEV team for releasing a MODX version of the code changes for this upgrade--and more importantly, a second, text version!--as it finally puts everything together for we poor saps who like to work under the hood of our boards.

Naturally, I had JUST finished remodding a fresh install of 3.0.1--I couldn't upgrade my 3.0.0 before, without the MODX info--and was moving on to some custom scripts, when 3.0.2 was released. However, It was my pleasure to get to them with the change files.

No worries, and all is in order!

Thanks!

So if I update to the new version will all my settings, permissions, skin customisations etc. remain the same?

And is it a straightforward update I can do from The ACP or do I have to mess about in my server files?

Thanks in advance for any replies and thanks for everything you do making such an awesome software available for free, I'm wondering though if I might be best waiting for all the bug finds and reports to be fixed as we have a large community on my forum and spent a lot of time customising things so don't want anything to go wrong ;)

It is always a good plan to wait a few weeks after a release to let the early adopters flush out issues.
I would also suggest having a dev site on a large site like yours so you can test before going live.

If you wait for others to find issues in a maintenance release, those issues will not be fixed until a next maintenance release. You could be waiting forever. :) Of course, you can wait for a few days to see if there are not major problems with the release and people actually need to roll back in anticipation of a next maintenance release, but with the new QA process for maintenance releases in place, that scenario seems quite unlikely.
