Two years behind what? I'm not following your logic here. How is Maya 2 years behind itself?

I personally skipped 2016-2018, as there were no new features for arch/viz other than the shift to Arnold, which is pointless. Perhaps in 2019 they will introduce something helpful for my work.

This change will improve install and uninstall times.

Customers should be aware:Any custom automated install scripts may be affected, if you are using an automated scripts to install a Maya patch, the command line should be update to use the full install command line.The new Installer will uninstall older version of Maya 2018 (+Updates) automatically and install new full version in the same location.Previous Builds (2017 and older) will not be impacted.Regards

I was one of the people begging for patches several years ago and I got it. Silly me for thinking AD would make patches that installed faster then complete uninstall/reinstall. Stupid worthless AD for screwing up the patch process.
