Description

irssi has /upgrade for in-place upgrading. It would be cool if smuxi had this too! It would be even cooler if I could in-place upgrade the server without losing my connections. Imagine that?!

Being serious, how would this work with a distro managed install?!?

That doesn't matter as the process runs as the user. You can upgrade the binary through the distribution without affecting running programs, of course. The next time it's launched it will be the new version (quitting and relaunching). This feature is about doing the quitting and relaunching seamlessly, without losing state or (most importantly) connections.
