anyone know if Beta Mint 20.3 ready for download>?
Have you actually tried clicking that button and are reporting a bug about it not being permanent? Or are you just assuming that I don't know what I'm doing?Drugwash wrote: ↑Thu Dec 19, 2019 4:21 amPlease add a "Don't tell me again" checkbox to that banner (or anywhere in Preferences), because I'm not gonna upgrade and I don't want it wasting screen space (and my patience) on each and every refresh or update. Or make the click on OK as a permanent action.
Either way, once acknowledged there's no use in pestering the user with the same announcement over and over again.
I had a little hope left that it wasn't I who doesn't know what he's doing.
Well, that hope is gone now.
Of course - it was just (my) bad luck. As always.
So what would be less annoying, pushing a new mintupdate version to fix this or to leave it as is for now until I've got enough content for a real patch? I'm never sure.
Well, I'm not giving users the choice regarding updates to Update Manager itself, that's why I prefer to keep the frequency down (althogh I removed the password requirement for them and with the option to apply self-updates automatically you can keep the hassle to a minimum - although I do, of course, prefer you to actually read and understand the changelogs, that's why I write them).
Yeah, that may be a delicate topic too. Since there have been (and may be in the future) certain bugs in Updater, some people may want to stay behind a release or two until they're sure everything is alright. As such, maybe the forced update for the Updater should be reconsidered. But that's just a side idea.
It could be argued, but I'll stick with how it is. I'll just have to be more careful about not breaking things. Pjotr has that PPA of his that freezes my release for a while to provide more stability, maybe give that a try. But frankly the update frequency has become a bit lower already and will continue slowing down as I run out of things to polish. I'm pretty much feature complete now as far as things I want to see in the app go. I'm sure something small here and there may still come up, maybe via user suggestions, but overall I'm good with how it works.
You wouldn't know, since the update restarts Update Manager, and restarting already fixed it before the patch.
I was gonna say, what happened to the projected 6 months schedule? Plus I'll have some fixes coming in later today probably if I find the time, so you'll be tempted again.
May I ask what exactly have you been running? Just out of curiosity.
Does that ever work? Doing it right at the very first attempt, I mean. Well, good luck with that!
Are you speaking for yourself or are you gm10's secretary?
Wrong! It's MS-DOS 6.22, because of its elegant autoexec.bat. I know, because I'm practically gm10's neighbour.Kadaitcha Man wrote: ↑Tue Dec 31, 2019 3:53 am
