For the last few days I have been working on implementing “On-Demand Updates” — accessible from the context menu. So with Beta 10, on the context menu, you will now have an entry called “Check for Updates“. The function will check, download and apply any updates available automatically for you. The process is completely automated. All you have to do is confirm you want to check for update and confirm you want the updates applied if any. During the update process, old versions of the newly downloaded files will be moved to anc.old sub folder in the Advanced Network Configurator folder so if in case you have any issues with the new versions, you can always revert back.
I know that just because something is newer, it doesn’t mean it’s better! I mean, look at that memory leak I recently fixed! Also, don’t worry, automatic update checks will be turned off by default and always will be unless you otherwise say so but currently you won’t have an option to automatically check for updates on start up. When the “Check for updates on Start Up” option is implemented, it will be turned off by default.
