Hi Markus,

I tried to upgrade using the links from the announcement. I added the respective repositories to my sources.list file and upgraded no problem. I now have 6.2.3, unfortunately this does not include the v.db.join. I am now downloading the 6.3 source and am going to compile using that. Do I need to uninstall 6.2.3 before I compile?

Also I found the v.db.join script at 
Can I use this script in 6.2.3? If so how do I go about compiling and using?

Many thanks,
