Re: [tdf-discuss] Automatic Update / Update info


So, we're talking about some discussions that took place during the
OpenOffice time, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away :-)
I don't remember why we had chosen not to implement it for betas/RC ,
there was supposedly a good reason for that but I completely forgot
about it. Let me ask anyway. 

@Mike: apps that notifies users when another software can be updated
exist a lot on the mac but here Jaime was mentioning one specific
feature of LibreOffice that notifies the user directly and, possibly,
updates LibO by itself.

best,
Charles.

I would love to, if I could! Maybe I'll have to learn how to make
extensions and probably make one.

If it's already implemented for the stable releases, why not add it
to the RCs too, as optional?

Cheers!

It does work only for stable releases (unless we dumped that update
component???) . Anyway, if you have any ideas on the implementation
of such a feature, you're welcome to upload a patch :-)

Best,

Charles.

I have LibreOffice 3.3.0 rc3 and I was not notified of the rc4.

Hi,

Actually that does already exist, if I'm not misstaken, except
it does not do anything with uninstall the old version. But
there's an alert on the desktop that notifies the user when
there's a new version (same with extensions btw).

Best,
Charles.

Why not make a simple solution in the meantime?

Only tell the user there is a new version, and a link to the
new version. Obviously the installable of the new version
should be able to automatically de-install the old version.
That should be actually very easy, don't you think so?

Cheers!

Hello all,

for when is it planned to have Automatic Update for
Windows & Mac LibreOffice, for Linux usually makes no
sense?

My opinion, the user should be able to decide if it's
completely Automatic, or they only get an info pop window,
offering a one click update.

Cheers!

Jaime


It would be an excellent idea, and many thought about it,
but the question is how feasible it is. I'm sure it is
possible but it requires quite a lot of resources, time,
etc. So don't expect it in the 3.4...

best,
Charles.
