code upgrades

edited July 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
hi nav, it's ithcy from o8. and tw.

first, congratulations on the vanilla release. it's fantastic. i really love it.

i have a question about upgrades. i'd like to add functionality to my own vanilla install to check for and optionally apply upgrades automatically.

i could obviously find out if an upgrade is available by scraping the download link, but do you think in the future you might serve a feed or a little textfile with the latest version number and possibly md5sum or something?

    I was actually hoping to build something like that myself - but if you wanted to take it on I'd love to see what you come up with. Of course I'd be willing to help in any way.
  • ok, great, i'll start in on it.
  • yeah.. i was gonna suggest this once he'd done the auto installer.
    Great minds...
