Automatic program updates

Postby tuan kuranes » Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:51 am

Add Auto-update to xnview (all version).

Updating by download manually each version and install is cumbersome and even complex on "parent's computer" situation... (when kids not there to help they stay stuck on oooooold version)

Using this c++ library for instance https://github.com/google/omaha you get auto update and it fixes this.

Note that it's also a good investment for forum support,
as it halves the:

please report in the forum post the version you use ?

and the usual followup
please update, the version you use is old, bug has been fixed

Arrggg! Totally agree! Love this program but YES auto updates would be AMAZING! There are so many updates to this software (a good thing) but it makes me use the old versions for much longer because I hate the hassle of updating. This would be a reason to donate a couple bucks as well, for me.

thanks
