"Update Available" notification

Post by jeremy » Tue May 25, 2010 7:20 pm

'Nuf said? I find myself checking the download link on this site pretty often to find out if I'm up to date. What about an optional update notification, possibly in the footer?

Good idea!

In the footer will give to much load on my web server.
So I will add an update notification in the about and/or config screen.

For a good working update notification the version numbering must be uniform.
What do you think from this numbering scheme?

major.minor.(one digit build)(one digit develop)

5.20 beta/develop/rc > 5.20.01 develop, 5.20.02 develop, 5.20.03 beta 1, 5.20.04 beta 2, 5.20.05 RC1, …
5.20 > 5.20.10
5.20b > 5.20.20
5.20c > 5.20.30

I gone use the php version_compare() function.
This will make it a lot easier.
