Update option suggestion

Recommended Posts

Is there a possibility you could add an option to check for pre-release program updates?

I was thinking this could just be added to the Pro version.

We want to be able to meter the pre-releases as we go through our test phases and not "blast" them out.

Thanks for the reply Nick.

I understand your concerns over this and feel that your opinion is very valid.

However what I had in mind wasn't an automatic update to a pre-release version which I agree could be problematic.

I was thinking that there could be an option, say a checkbox that could be ticked to allow available pre-release versions to be shown after running update.

If there is a new pre-release build available then the user could decide whether or not they wanted to manually download this then install it.

In a nutshell a message at the end of update saying that "Pre-release version xxxx is now available. Click on link to download"

I will place that on our list, I understand how some users might like that.

The option may be beneficial for computer savy users, however the majority of computer users aren't computer savy.

I don't think it's a good idea to automatically offer the average user a beta release.
