I am using site definition approach for development and so i have created features for each and everything , i.e for content types,master page and layout pages, variations,Lists instances etc.
When i deploy solution from VS 2010, it first retreat solution and so removing everything and again in next steps add and activates each and everything.
In package, if i take some selected feature E.g Lists Features then it deploys only that but before it retract steps removes everything.
So in this case only Lists available in Site.
My question is : how i can customize deployent for some particular features ?
means if i just want to change only one column of list then only that feature need to updated on site and all other features should remain unchanged at all.
As i guess i can not remove retreat step from deployment steps as for add and activate solution retract is necessary
So kindly reply what is proper approach to upgrade only selected features and also if i am not on right track
