#17 closed task (implemented)

Create the infrastructure for automatic updates

Reported by: István Váradi Owned by: István Váradi
Priority: major Milestone: Read-only operation with GUI
Component: other Keywords:


It basically requires a storage space on the server, where the files are extracted to as they appear in the filesystem (or in the dist directory after running makeinst.bat). The updater should know about this location, and automatically download the updated files. Perhaps a manifest should be provided with the checksums of the files and that manifest should be copied into the installation directory as well.

The update should run when starting the program, but a menu option should be given to disable automatic updates and another one to update manually. Here the update server should be given. If automatic updates are enabled, and they fail, the option should be given to specify a new update server.
