There is a package manager like there is on every other major
distribution. In this case it's ipkg, a light version of the dpkg
(debian package). It can be used in (almost) the same way and is very

Like every other aspect of software in the middle of development there
might occur errors while updating!
But don't worry, I bet there will be a lot of help for you and others
alike recovering if anything fails!
