    Default 'Latest' version download link

    Hi - I'm wanting to automate (as far as possible) the provisioning of my workstation's Ubuntu installation, and was wondering if there is a link I can use to download the latest deb file of Beyond Compare, rather than having to know the specific version number of BC to install. For example, if something like 'https://www.scootersoftware.com/bcompare-latest_amd64.deb' pointed to the latest install (whatever version that happened to be at the time), then I can always use that URL, even when new versions are released...

    When you install BC4 on Ubuntu using the .deb, it creates a custom repository source /etc/apt/sources.list.d/scootersoftware.list, containing:
    Code:
    deb http://www.scootersoftware.com/ bcompare4 non-free
    The normal Ubuntu software update process will use that to keep BC4 up to date.
