I guess they only have to do something in this regard for Windows, since Linux package managers usually can deal with delta updates just fine.

LibreOffice does not use delta updates for Linux nor OSX...

It's not LibreOffice's decision how updates are distributed. It's the Linux distributions'.
openSUSE for example does have delta updates like libreoffice-base-3.5.4.7_3.5.4.13-1.1.2_1.4.5.x86_64.drpm and I'm sure other distributions do as well.

As an LO dev (and my info could well be out of date) Windows is a PIG PIG PIG to develop for. Incremental updates probably make sense.

My 3-core AMD builds LO from scratch in a couple of hours on linux.

Last I heard, the 8-core timberwotsit server that builds the windows version took roughly a WEEK per build.

Anything to reduce the stress of building the windows version is probably seized at with every hand available.

Cheers,
Wol
