Yup, 2.4 is going to be massive. It's going to be the biggest patch for mods since 2.0. There are going to be a lot of broken mods. People really want to be on the lookout for updated versions as quickly as the authors pump them out, so you aren't scrambling on patch day itself. A number of authors already have updates available (some of them as "beta" versions) which you can help them test on the PTRs to help make sure they'll be gtg when it goes live.

It's gonna be another wild ride though.

Ok... so this isn't the patch patch, but a prerelease patch in patched bits before the real patch? (omg, not sure if that made any sense LOL)

Probably a patch that contains all the large texture files and large files that aren't likely to change while they fix bugs. That way on patch day you have a smaller patch of just the changes they made while fixing the bugs.

Just my guess.

Aye, it's a "background" download that lets them distribute it to their users over time instead of having everyone trying to get the full download on patch day itself. Come patch day it (should) just be a little download to finish it off and push it live.
