The !update Command: Download/Install Update

Syntax: !update
This command is equivalent to giving the special keyword ``:xt_pkgs'' to the help system, which brings up the XicTools package management page (see 6.1.1). The page lists installed and available packages for each of the XicTools programs for the current operating system, and provides buttons to download and install the packages.

Unlike in earlier Xic releases, there is no provision for automatic checking for updates, so this command or equivalent should be run periodically to check for updated packages.
