    Default 'New version available!'

    "New version available" on the menu bar.

    Is that new or have I just not been paying attention?

    I would like the option to download now and install later.

    Where is the file downloaded to?

    Is it removed after being installed?

    If it's already been downloaded, should it download again if the file is the same?

    Should it say install complete when finished?

    Should it restart Cirrus automatically with the previous session?

    It was added in the February 13 release.

    I'm considering an option to download to the desktop rather than a "silent" install.

    Where is the file downloaded to?
    Your Windows Temp folder.

    Is it removed after being installed?
    We're adding temp folder cleanup to the next Cirrus release.

    If it's already been downloaded, should it download again if the file is the same?
    Perhaps not, but it's not clever enough to determine that.

    Should it say install complete when finished?
    Yes, it would be nice to have some indication of that.

    Should it restart Cirrus automatically with the previous session?
    We're looking into that.

    Thanks,

    I can't answer all your questions...but if you choose to install it right away:
    • You will you will be prompted to close Cirrus (and should do so)
    • No restart of Windows is necessary
    • Cirris is not automatically restarted. However, when you relaunch Cirrus, the Session Manager will be pointing to the latest session you were using. Just reopen the session to continue what you were doing.

    ..and the automatic restart works nicely. Good job

    I was running Beta 447 and had set the update notification to 1 day as requested.

    Cirrus had been running on my PC since Tuesday at about 6:30 A.M. On Wednesday afternoon, I got an e-mail from Aaron asking me to test something with Beta 448. Cirrus had not notified me of an update.

    Maybe Cirrus only checks once a day when you set it to check daily? Maybe it checks when you start it and every 24 hours afterward and Beta 448 was realease after 6:30 A.M. on Wednesday.

    When I clicked Help => Check for Updates, Cirrus found Beta 448 and installed it correctly.

    Cirrus only checks for updates automatically when it starts.

    Would it be possible to get the option as to where the file downloads? My reasoning is two-fold. First I just don't like stuff to be dumped onto my desktop. Second, files on the desktop end up in roaming profiles which get notoriously large. I'd rather have the option to put the file on my local hard drive (somewhere it won't get sucked back into the profile) or on a network drive should I need it on multiple machines.

    %TEMP% might be a good place

    Thanks. I'll consider a user-settable location.
