What does the updater do?

I understand that LO 3.5 implements (or re-implements) an updating mechanism. It sounds like a cool concept, but I haven't seen anything that details just how it works or what it's supposed to do. Does it just pull the latest binaries/installers from TDF servers? Does it download patches that can be applied to the current installed build to bring it up to date (which would be an excellent use of the feature)?

If ever there is full documentation for how the feature works, can someone please tell me?
