History

  • Status changed from New to Work in progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 50

This has been implemented in version 3.0.4 of the software. Testing is underway.

#2 Updated by Elliott McCrory over 1 year ago

  • % Done changed from 50 to 80

Every node checks for the update, but there is a bug in this script that requires that the startup script be run again to actually catch the update.

The problem is that the script for the OLD version continues to run, so any changes in that script in the NEW version (e.g., to run a different class, say, DisplayAsConnectionToSelenium) is not done. The fix is to notice if the software has been updated and then restart the script entirely. This is in v4.1.5, but needs to be tested.
