|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000749: Checking for updates does not work the first time (when "Check for updates on startup" is disabled)|
|Description||When the preference "Check for updates on startup" is disabled,|
and "Tools / Check for updates" is selected for the first time after
program start-up, nothing happens. Only after the second time you get the
"There are no new versions of DCP-o-matic available."-pop-up.
Did not check if the same happens when a new version *is* available.
(tested with v2.5.3)
|Steps To Reproduce|
- have up-to-date DCP-o-matic with "Check for updates on startup" disabled
- fresh start DCP-o-matic
- select "Tools / Check for updates" --> nothing happens
- select "Tools / Check for updates" --> "no new versions" pop-up is displayed

||Thanks for the report; fixed by f4e6a36244b0838d4f28d44e09d983686d1bd597 which will be in 2.5.4.|
The problem was fixed indeed, thanks. But there's a small new snag:
The checkbox "Check for testing updates as well as stable ones"
can only be used if the checkbox "Check for updates on startup"
I assume that one should be able to check for testing updates manually
too (besides on startup)? So then the "Check for testing .." checkbox
should always be active (independent of the startup check)
||"Check for testing updates as well as stable ones" only applies to the startup check. The manual check always tells you about both stable and testing updates. Does that make sense?|
Ah OK, now I understand the logic! Good that one can verify (actually
always verify) testing updates with the manual check too.
It might confuse some (maybe one? :-) people a bit, but at least there's is
a complete check for the manual case available too!
||I've tweaked the name of that option in my local copy so hopefully it is clearer now.|
