Deluge alerts of new versions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Deluge tells you about new versions by default. A window pops-up saying:
"There is a newer version of Deluge. Would you like to be taken to our download
This isn't really useful in Fedora though, given that yum updates to any new
Fedora packaged versions.
There is a preference under the "Other" tab to "Be alerted about new release" -
perhaps this should be off by default in the Fedora packaged versions?
Hmm. I will definitely look into this. Thanks for your bug report.
I'm just wondering if I should remove that feature entirely or simply disable by
default. Fedora's Firefox and OO.org packaging both have their update
notification feature disabled entirely, as I understand it; so I'll probably
follow suit with Deluge's.
Deluge 0.5.5-2 will have this fix included (disabled by default, but still
available as an option, since that involved far less patching/tweaking than
removing it entirely). It should hit the next testing repository push within the
next couple of days.
deluge-0.5.5-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
