4.0.1 available for download but Simplfy 4.0.0 says up-to-date

Thu May 31, 2018 10:51 am

I just got aware that 4.0.1 is available for download. When I use the "check for update" function in my 4.0.0 Simplify it says "up-to-date". That's stupid.... Can someone look into this?

Its been like that since v4.0.1 was made available.

If you want 4.0.1, log onto your account and download the software as if its going to give you 4.0.....and it will be 4.0.1 that is downloaded.

Yeah sure but isn't the check for update function in a software meant to tell me that a new release is available? Whats the point then?

4.01 has its own crop of bugs, so I keep both 4.0 and 4.01 alive. I tend to run 4.0 unless I run into a build that won't slice with it.

The one that annoys me the most is the hosed start point settings.

I agree, what is the point of a "check for updates" feature if it does not ACTUALLY check for updates?

401 is to buggy, probably best to fix it before letting it go prime time. I was back on 400 within a minute because the shortcuts didn't work.

Just to balance the bias on this discussion.....I have been running v4.0.1 since a day or so after its release and I have had no problems with it!...and have had no need to go back to v4.0.0 to slice anything of my own. I have loaded earlier versions so as to assist others on the forum with issues with previous releases.

And, yes, there are issues with v4.0.1.....but in my experience there are less issues than in previous releases.
