The software update tool can download and install the newest version of MyTourbook.
This tool is currently used only for minor updates, major updates must still be downloaded from sourceforge.net.
Since version 16.4 the update is done with P2, this is an internal Eclipse framework.
The update tool P2 has many features which can be ignore in MyTourbook, e.g. a part of the application can be uninstalled, don't do this.
Because this tool installs software in the installation folder, for a successfull installation, it is possible that the application must be run with administrator permissions.
