You will not be able to update TL2009 to TL2010 if that is what you mean. There are structural differences between the two that preclude that. I know it is a hope for the future.

You will be able to update TL2010 once it's released just as you could update TL2009 using TLU. I'm not sure what the repository name(s) will be at this time. Even after the release I'd guess there will be a delay as the rush to push updates that have ahppened since the TL2010 pretest freeze starts to fill the pipes.

If you have TL2010 pretest you could update up till the freeze that took place in mid-July. Now the DVD is being put together and then must go through some rigorous testing before TL2010 release. The repositories were special for the pretest and will change once the release has taken place.

Good Luck,
