We're in the midst of working out some changes to bring automated "nightly" builds to the public in a platform-agnostic ZIP format (meaning that all 3 platforms ship in the same build). These will be linked to from the forums and on a special page off the main site. I don't have an estimate on when this will be available - we're testing it internally to work out the kinks.

"Nightly" sw.jar and engine.swc patches will continue to be available to patch your copy in-place.

I've updated the instructions with a step 4 for those of you getting a "Can't Update" error upon the app restarting after downloading an update.

This was happening due to some changes we were making to get StencylWorks running out of a restricted directory, which made it necessary for us to change all file writing to external directories.

We are discontinuing the manual patch process in favor of nightly builds (which will start in a few weeks) and an improved patch system in 1.2 that will automate the whole thing by grabbing the nightly copies of sw.jar, engine.swc and the language packs. In the are case where other components require an upgrade, you'll be asked to grab a nightly and continue patching from there.

FYI, the 1.1 previews I'm putting out are newer than the patches available here which I've had to manually upload myself.
