initial version

It is a check-for-updates only, it doesn't offer fully automated updates and there are no smaller update-patches for the time being, but rather offers you to trigger a download of the new version.

You would still have to download the full installer and have to manually run the installer to complete the update.

So for the time being it is just a convenience feature.

In larger (corporate) installations, you can also point it to your own server and server a static.xml file - see http://www.mail-archive.com/libreoffice@lists.freedesktop.org/msg20854.html for example.

Edit: It can also be configured to autmatically download the installer in Tools|Options → LibreOffice → Online Update → "Download updates automatically" (disabled by default, you can configure a target path at the same location)
