== Summary ==
== Detailed Description ==
Update enables users to update their installed activities from the Activities Library at activities.sugarlabs.org. Activities.sugarlabs.org is base based on the well -established addons.mozilla.org.
Using ASLO the client can request information about updated updates by sending a url URL of the form,
http://activities.sugarlabs.org/services/update-aslo.php?id=org.laptop.WebActivity&appVersion=0.82
ASLO responds by returning an XML of the form,
<pre>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<RDF:RDF xmlns:RDF="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:em="http://www.mozilla.org/2004/em-rdf#"><RDF:Description about="urn:mozilla:extension:org.laptop.WebActivity">
</em:targetApplication>
</RDF:Description></RDF:RDF>
 </pre>
== Benefit to Sugar ==
There will not be external api changes.
Over the last several months, ASLO has been improving and proving it's reliability. Many activities are being served via ASLO as their information is marked deprecated on wiki.laptop.org. Shifting update to point to also ASLO will require clear communication to end users and developers.
=== Implementation ===
== How To Test ==
 Click on My Settings -> Software update. Visually verify the "From Version XXX to XXX" is correct for your system by checking what is available on ASLO.{{:{{PAGENAME}}/Testing}}
== User Experience ==
The user will be able to check if there are any activity updates that can be fetched and installed.
== Release Notes ==
As of Sugar 0.86, upload will default to the only backend is activities.sugarlabs.org . Specifying other servers and update formats are out of scope of this specific feature.
== Comments and Discussion ==
* See [[{{TALKPAGENAME}}|discussion tab for this feature]] <!-- This adds a link to the "discussion" tab associated with your page. This provides the ability to have ongoing comments or conversation without bogging down the main feature page -->
