I like FileZilla's update mechanism

Post by ChrisGreaves »

I was running 3.48.
A popup advised me that a new version was available.
I am trying to trust applications to auto-update, but I do have a teeny problem with FileZilla, so I thought "Why not d/l the new version right now, and then install it later".
As well I always feel well-armed if I have several prior versions waiting in the wings as a fall-back mechanism.

To my intense delight, FileZilla went ahead and quietly downloaded the file "FileZilla_3.50.0_win64-setup.exe" and just as quietly let me know about it (see text just above the "Install" button on my edited screenshot), and let me get on with life.
No further nagging ("You know, you really ought to install it") from FileZilla.

Of course, chances are that if I execute the 3.48.1 setup I will find installed the 3.50.0 version, but still and all, I do like the quiet no-fuss pre-paration.

Cheers
Chris
