The current Beta is over 2GB.  Is it not possible to have some sort of patch system?  Otherwise every time there's a fix, change or minor update we have these massive downloads for what might be a change affecting maybe 5MB of file.

First we'll try to unify the 32 and 64 bit build since they are exactly the same except for a small c++ codebase which is smaller than 100 MB.

A patch system leaves much to be desired but for quick fixes it might solve a lot. However, a patch system tends to make a mess of things because you are not doing a clean install but patching what you already have. We made Lumion so the program files folder is never written so maybe for Lumion it's possible since the old code base is always the same.
