Updating an MTS component

I've never used MTS in an application before, but have recently created a couple of MTS components for a new project that I am working on.  Everything is working great, but of course, at some point people are going to want changes to the MTS component, so I want to know how I go about doing this.

Basically I need to know what needs to be changed on the MTS machine and what needs to be changed on the client machines that have the application installed on there machine.

The most important thing is that you'll keep the binary cometability!
Do not change the interface of existing methods/properties. This will make sure that the client applications will go on working...

If you want to add new classes that will run under mts (even adding a class to a registered dll), you'll have to add the class manually to MTS.

About the clients - if the application is a web app running on mts, you don't have to do nothing, otherwise you have to install the new export package.
If you are only changing existing methods internally - you do not have to redistribute the export packages.
