Hi everyone,

As some of you may noticed, the vast majority of links about Ultimate++ on the internet are leading to version 605 binary. We've already seen people coming here on the forum who started using it without knowing that there is newer, 4 years better version.

Most of the sites link directly to sf.net or to some exotic directories on this web. I would recompile the 605 and add a prompt (with big bold red letters) warning user that he uses ancient version of the software and provide a link to sf.net and/or to our web, to let him download something more recent.

If we just replace the original binaries with this tailored version, we can still make use (in PR sense) of those link that somehow got flooded all over the internet, while ensuring that the users are at least aware that there is something newer.

What do you think about it?

Best regards,
Honza

Well, I wouldn't go that far. Finding an empty package would just make me angry if I were the user... Just a simple Exclamation annoying the user at each start would do the job Wink

PS: I know it feels a lot like a shareware... Very Happy But I believe it could drive few more users to the project.

i noticed it too... there is really little info / valuable recession about upp in the cloud, most dated to 605.. isn't there a way to clean that / wipe that cache out? or is it really 'the net does not forget'? then the only choice is producing a lot of 'new' information..

Interestingly, I have found that we will be able to fix this easily - all those sites are periodically checking our website for 'pad file', so we can easily submit a new version there... i plan to do that once we have a next stable release...

(I have found this a hard way during migration - I have not moved the file and all those sites started to complain by email... Smile
