I received a notification that Service Pack 2 for Caesar II V12 is now available. I'm downloading it now and looking over the readme. There's a rather disturbing change that I stumbled upon.

The readme indicates that SP1 and Hot Fix 1 need to be installed prior to installing SP2. In all previous incarnations of service packs, they have been cumulative.

This is going to make for a support hassle, particularly when setting up a new V12 install and applying updates. I don't think any of my users are even running Hot Fix 1 as the issues it addressed didn't apply to our work processes.

Why the change?

Hello Edward,

Similar to all previous releases, SP2 is cumulative and includes all prior fixes. However, Hot Fix 1 instructions included some manual steps related to security fixes and unfortunately these steps cannot be automated in SP2. This led to special instructions listed in SP2 readme.

If you are not concerned about the security vulnerability addressed in Hot Fix 1, please proceed to install v.12 SP2 directly.
