First my apologies if I missed something obvious! I'm currently running PSI v1.9.0.0 and though I'd check to see whether it had been updated as is often the case with beta code. Nothing stuck out in PSI 2.0 TP. Couldn't find anything in the original announcement thread (now closed) so went an looked at "Add PSI to the Auto-Update??" topic/thread and posts in there seemed to indicate there had been version changes, presumably discovered by downloading and installing the application using the link in the original announcement.

Now, I don't disagree with the position of not including an auto update facility for PSI itself but we need some sort of notification of a new beta/pre-release version, perhaps a sticky topic in this forum.

Hi,

The PSI only tracks insecure software, which is why we don't list our own software. Also, non-beta versions of the PSI should warn users when an update is available.

As for the TP, things may be a little sporadic. Most things we change immediately affect user systems, as the UI for the PSI is loaded over the network. Any critical changes, as well as the final release, will be announced.

hope this helps.

I'd just like to agree with the OP. I was going to post some feedback regarding the beta version of PSI that I'm running, but version 1.9.0.2 may not be current any more. I'm not sure where to get the latest beta so I'll have to go hunting for it*. I'll stow my feedback issue until I know whether or not it's already been resolved.

Regards

*Edit: okay, I give up - where is the current beta download?

Still give up ?? Here :-

http://secunia.com/PSISetupAUTP.exe

It should load 1.9.0.2 and show this version bottom left of any PSI page ; it will show as 1.9.0.1 in "about" and in the "patched" tab - unless things have just changed again .

Hope this helps.

Anthony

Cheers Anthony, but if 1.9.0.2 is still current then I'm up to date. So I'll post my issues with auto-updates doing nothing at all.
