Cool.

And this is a learning experience... Once you release code, it's on its own. A bit like children, or chickens, but different.

The topic title says 2.11.0, but the thread text says 2.11.1. It looks like 2.11.0 is the latest version on the linked page, so I assume that's the latest version.

Thanks for your work on this!

Thanks

Thanks for playing along Scott.

As a young child I used to get the shit kicked out of me for trying to get things correct.

The rule is now in place to redirect everything to HTTPS. And it broke my MISFIT 2.10.0 (unsurprisingly). It's unfortunate that the built-in update feature was unaware of the new version, I assume this is related to the new hosting location.

For the older versions, is there a way to tell them "go here for the new one", and for the new version, is the auto-update looking in a new place?

Just for the record, a MISFIT and GPU72 user just contacted me privately by way of email reporting the same issue.

Please give Scott and Aaron some time to fix this. Software is harder to get correct than most people think. Imagine trying to upgrade an airplane's wing in mid-flight....

Okay, thanks! I write software myself, so I can appreciate the difficulties. I figured "nope" was a very possible answer to my inquiries.

:madpoo:

Perhaps.

Are there any particular questions you are interested in?

Sometime last year I stopped putting my software out on the FTP site because I no longer want to push software over an unencrypted Channel. As you've noticed I'm hosting it on Microsoft OneDrive but I never upgraded the feature that checks for the software upgrade. If the Gimp FTP moves to SFTP or ftps I will, resume using it.

Does anyone know about moving to encrypted FTP?



Thanks Scott

SFTP probably won't happen as that requires an account.

I would use HTTPS.
