Usually I get automatic notice of a pending update, but not with this one. And Va “check for updates” says I have the latest version. Just FYI.

Hi David,

Yes, you’re right. We usually wait a couple of days to enable automatic notification when a new version is released. This gives us a chance to remove the update if any of the few users that get the new version (mostly Discourse users and new evaluation users) detect any serious new bug.

As it happens, the install routine didn’t work. I got the update notice today. I clicked on it, but nothing happened. I’m going to download the update package again just to make sure.
