Most Current Blockstack Browser


#1

Maybe there’s already a fix for this, but I’d like to see something added to the homepage that allows me to check if I have the most current version of the Blockstack browser. So sometimes I get prompted that there’s a new update, but other times I don’t get anything. It’s possible I have a setting wrong, but it’d be nice if there was just a button I could click (like in your iPhone) where I can just check to see if an update is available.

Thoughts?

This is a great idea!

On mac, you can option-click the blockstack menu and check for updates.

We should definitely add something product/platform wide though. Can you open a feature request on github? https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-browser/issues/new

Thoughts - a good place might be in the browser “settings” tab section, as another clickable item along with “storage providers”, “change password” …

Thanks for sharing the option-click! That’ll make things much easier.

And I’ll be sure to open up a feature request on github.

This seems like a good location; I added your suggestion to the “feature request” on github.

Thanks for doing that.

No problem! Your suggestion made a lot of sense to me.
