I forget...should we do "Set Update Channel to default" to get any subsequent RC releases, or keep it on beta still?

This always confuses me  Confused.  Thanks!

Sorry, I don't know. But I've made no changes. Now I'm waiting for 4.0d B1 Wink

Release Candidates are put out on the Beta channel (If memory serves).

Keep it on Beta (do nothing) until Logos decides that RC-2 or whatever is golden, then change it to default unless you want 4.0d Beta 1 as soon as it comes out.

Is there any functional difference between the last beta channel release candidate, and the full release of the same version?

Or is it just internal labeling?

For example, I'm wondering if one must be on the "Default' channel in order to get the most current help file...

In terms of version number the last RC will be the same as what is pushed out on the stable channel (notice that the About doesn't say that it is a RC just in case they don't need an RC 2)

I don't know about the which help files go to each release channel. I would presume that the Beta channel gets everything before it is placed on the default.

If a beta release and a stable release run concurrently (4.0c and 4.0b) Logos will direct resources to the appropriate channel. The updated Rev Int's went to the beta channel only but a smaller package of resources was sent to both channels. The most current Help file may only work with the beta and should not be released to stable!

If you switch to "Default" channel with RC1 you will only get updates on the stable channel. If there is an RC2 you will have to use the web link or switch channel to "Beta".

No. If RC1 goes "gold" you already have it!

  • set update channel to beta — you get release and beta versions regardless of what you're running
  • set update channel to stable — you only get stable versions regardless of what you're running
  • set update channel to default — you get release versions if you're running release or RC, and beta versions if you're running beta

As I understand it this will mean that if you're channel is set to default, you won't get RC2 - if there is one.

This is true but there was an interesting example where it did not "seem" true, at face value. There was an example very recent. I'm going to guess a little, so the numbers below won't be right, but the principle should hold ...

I was on 4.0c Beta2 when 4.0b was released to non-Beta users. It did NOT installed to my PC, as my release/build number was already higher.

Yes, of course. Thanks for making that clear.
