I am no expert, but these all appear to be significant. Any thought to updating the manual? Or is this already done with each new version.

A week ago, I downloaded and installed the Beta version of this update. Do I now have to download the definitive 1.006 or can I forego?
I remember reading that the 1.006 Beta had a minor helicopter problem which would be dealt with in the final 1.006. However, when I tried downloading the final non-Beta 1.006 the system warned me not to proceed, otherwise I would lose the game serial number or something drastic like that.

I was in the same boat and wondered if it was worth bothering installing the latest version over the beta version but I did anyway. I got the same message about the serial number but ignored it and it installed OK.

The only issue I did find was Avast antivirus has a serious disliking to the latest release, usually it checks the files briefly and then allows the install, this time, I had to disable Avast to allow installation. But maybe it was an Avast issue and they had no record of the installation file when the program submitted it for checking and it had to check it thoroughly. Considering it was yesterday the file was submitted for checking, it was only today that I received a message saying that the file was safe.

If I remember correctly, this official version fixes the helicopter issue introduced in the beta version. So you should install it.

Yes the beta patch had the helicopter issue that's fixed now in the official patch. It may be ok to install the official patch over the beta, but I recommend reinstalling the game if you used the beta patch, and then applying the official one.

If you are installing the game from scratch, do you install the patches sequentially, or just install the latest patch?

Grand

That'll be the rule of thumb across all Matrix games?

Wonder what happens beyond Matrix.
