Download it into your home directory, then execute the following commands:

Now you can use it in the following manner: css-update [-d] <version>, where 

  • -d will take updates from the development repository,
  • <version> is the version you want to be updated to.

This command:

  • will move /opt/cs-studio folder into /opt/cs-studio-<old-version>,
