The new version of Komodo is asking me if I want do do the download but there’s no option to turn off checking that I can find. Does anyone know how to turn if off?
There is no UI option for it, but you could manually turn them off using these instructions:
Is there a particular reason you’re not upgrading? Please let us know. We’re not aware of any issues preventing our users from wanting to upgrade.
Thanks nathanr. That worked.
I don’t allow any applications to automatically check for or apply updates. I never have. I don’t even let Windows do it. I actually keep the update service disabled because Windows has a habit of applying updates even if you’ve got the option to check for updates turned off.
I could go into a very long rant on the reasons and you would probably disagree with them but I really really hate this trend.
While I’ve got you, your update prompt doesn’t have the option to stop reminding me. The only choices are “Update” or “Ask me later”. I can’t tell you how much that kind of thing irritates me. You’re program is saying that you’re going to just keep hounding me until I update regardless of how I feel about it. It seriously makes me want to stop using the software altogether.
I like Komodo and have been a customer for a long time but I also have Pycharm and Wing. The update harassment gives me a very strong incentive to switch my main development tool.
One the bright side, I really appreciate your asking. I don’t know if you can do anything about it but it’s nice to know that someone at least cares. Thanks.
P.S. If there is a new update, just send out an email. I’ll check it out and decide if I want to update to the new version
You’re philosophy is your own. I just want make sure there isn’t something keeping you from upgrading bug wise.
