Windows did not show me an Update Status Dialog telling me my Windows software was Current AND show me the new version number telling me there is a new version. It simply did not show me a Windows 10 update line item.
Firefox does not work this way either - it does not show a new version and tell me my old version is current. When I check for Updates, they are either there or they aren’t.
DOpus does the opposite - it says “HEY, here’s your version, and it is Current, but let me now show you a line item that specifically contradicts what I just said”. It reeks of broken-ness, and that too often does happen with software updaters. Your way makes it impossible to distinguish the difference, and simply feels untrustworthy.
The dialog should be consistent - if you don’t want me to have the software now (using your push example), don’t show the line item until you’re ready. If you are going to allow me to have it, then the dialog should tell me my software is behind and that I can / may update.
I think the auto-updater and News / Status dialog should have consistent views of the Directory Opus world, but it doesn’t now. Its a combination of two functions, and the information presented by those two functions is inconsistent. The line that says “Your version is current” simply serves no purpose because it is incorrect most of the time.
It could read “A new version 11.16 is available, and will be pushed to your system shortly”, and that would be correct.
