Is v4.5.3 still in testing?

Post by lwc » Sat Feb 08, 2020 4:21 am

The latest announcement still refers to v4.5.3 as a "pre-release", and unfortunately I had no time to test it.
But today I randomly saw it on the homepage as an official version - when did this happen?
So I've installed it and yet the UI makes it feel like it's still a "pre-release".

Do you have "Automatically check for updates" enabled and, if not, have you pressed the "check version" button? Latest version should say v4.5.3.

Perhaps Aug 29. That was a long time ago and I don't remember the specifics. And sometimes I get a little sloppy with the announcements -- there's lots going on with a release and even though I have a checklist, sometimes things get missed.

Meaning what...?

I took it to mean, assuming the term "UI" is in reference to the posted screen-shot and the assumption is that the term "Latest" taken as synonymous with "Official" -- then the "meaning" (interpretation) here is that if the "Latest" ("official") release is listed as older (based on the version number) than the "current" version (what is currently installed) as a more recent update (based on version number) would in this case appear to be a "perelease" (i.e. in "testing"). If that makes any sense. :D (I understand that not to be the case -- just surmising the possible thought process 8) FWIW)

You're right, clicking "checked version" solved it.

Just meant the screenshot.

Yeah, I had read this via RSS initially and hadn't looked at the graphic yet (I forgot to "double-click"), so I had formed my reply in my head before replying...

btw, you'll be happy to know that I added in code last night to set the "current" version to orange when the current is later than the latest. I think that this will really help me more than anyone else, because there have been times when I forgot to update a plugin's latest version and since it didn't stand out in the version list, I missed it even when I looked for it. (I guess that discussion wasn't in this thread)
