Upgrading to a new MegaWave2 version

If a former MegaWave2 software is installed on your machine, you may upgrade to a new version by following the same instructions as for a first installation. Old public modules will be replaced by new ones. It is likely that you or other users would have developed private modules (i.e. modules set in $MY_MEGAWAVE2/src) that make use of older system library and older public modules. In such a case when the new installation is finished, check if public modules used by private modules have changed in some way (especially in the input/output parameters) and modify accordingly private modules. And then, recompile all private modules (run a cmw2_all -clear -2p -dep . under $MY_MEGAWAVE2/src). All MegaWave2 user's should do such a recompilation on their own private modules, even if the sources (.c files) didn't require any modification : from one MegaWave2 version to a new one, the kernel may change a lot and therefore objects (such as .o and .doc files) generated by the old kernel may not be compatible with the new one.
