Preferences > Updates

From version 3.25-09, Structorizer offers an automatic notification of new downloadable versions. We think, however, that applications should not inadvertently connect to some internet site without being enabled to by their user.

This is what this preference is good for:

Preferences checkbox menu item

By activating the checkbox item "Notify of new versions" you allow Structorizer to request the version number of the most up-to-date Structorizer release downloadable as "latest version" from the Structorizer home page http://Structorizer.fisch.lu.

If the retrieved version number is newer than the one of your currently running Structorizer then a message box informing you on this newer version and where to obtain it from will pop up after Structorizer start:

Update dialog with new version indication

Actually, this is the same dialog being opened from menu item "Help => Update ... ".

Likewise, on opening the dialog associated to menu item "Help => About..." a hint will be shown in case a newer version is available if the preference "Notify of newer version" is active:

About dialog with version notification

If you deselect the preference "Notify of new versions" then no connection to the Structorizer homepage will be tried and, consequently, no information about newer versions will be shown. On the other hand, a hint that this option is available will pop up on Structorizer start:

Update notification preference info box

Lest this information popup should annoy you every time you start Structorizer, while you don't want to activate the update notification, you may suppress this popup for all subsequent Structorizer starts, simply by pressing button "Don't show this window again". This popup suppression will last till a new Structorizer version is installed. (Of course you may decide to enable or disable the update notification preference independently whenever you want.)
