A release announcement on the in-game start screen? I'm a bit confused about how that's supposed to work - to see that announcement, you already have to have the new release. And the old release won't have that announcement.
So I'm not sure what exactly you want:
a) Are you asking for a feature that checks for new releases and presents the user a notification on the start screen whenever an update is available?
b) Or do you want a feature that checks if the installation has been just updated (by an automatic update mechanism e.g. like snap) and displays a notification on the start screen to inform the user that an update has happened?
Both options make sense to me.
Ah yes, that makes sense. Nifty feature!Default branch should point to same release as latest/stable, but the branch is sticky. So if you install "stable" branch (i.e. default/stable) you get the latest version. And if the latest base version (e.g. 0.5.1 instead of 0.5.0) changes you would still have "your" version (e.g 0.5.0).
Agreed.As a debian user this is what I expect when installing "stable". If i want it to be rolling I install latest/stable instead.
