With every release, everything gets changed. The reason is that when the
compiler changes, in some cases the generated code and the ppu file
structure also changes (and between two releases, both happen most of the
time).

If you don't want to download everything, you can download the separate
packages of the things you want to upgrade (ie. it's possible you don't
want the new sources, or not immediately at least)
