GUI updates not working
« on: September 26, 2014, 05:01:18 PM »

System: Ubuntu 14..4

When I go to "File > check for updates" it reports back that no new updates are available.
In the "help" section in the client it says that I run v....15. But v....17 is already out.

What is wrong? Are the newest updates only for delegates? Or does the update process not work sufficiently? Or does it show a wrong version in the help section?

Getinfo also returns: v....15

"check for updates" only checks for GUI updates. For client updates you need to download the latest yourself from bitshares-x.info

The in-app update function sucks .. it only shows updates that are available for the gui-ONLY! not updates to the core .. the naming really sucks and you are not alone falling for that issue
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

yep, might want to stick a "git checkout v0.4.17" after git pull to be sure
