3.7.8 - Upgrade dialog
When you start a registered version of the Oso Memory Profiler, it will attempt to communicate with the Oso Corporation website to check for any new releases that might be available for you to install. Please note that this requires that the Oso Memory Profiler is installed on a computer with Internet access, and outgoing connections to http://osocorporation.com on TCP port 80 are not restricted. If the connection cannot be made, the Oso Memory Profiler will not notify you of this.
If a new version is available the Upgrade Dialog, as shown above, will be displayed. As you can see, this dialog will inform you which new version is available, along with the version of the Oso Memory Profiler you are currently using.
The available options in the dialog should be pretty self explanatory:
|Change Log...||Opens the list of changes for the new version in your favourite web browser. The change lists for all versions of the Oso Memory Profiler are always available on the Oso Corporation website here.|
|Download||Instructs the Oso Memory Profiler to download the new version in the background. You can continue working in your current session while it downloads. The new version will be installed when you exit the Oso Memory Profiler.|
|Postpone...||Allows you to postpone this update for a certain amount of time. A pop-up menu (pictured above) gives you three time periods you can postpone the update for.|
If there is an update available that your existing licence does not cover, the Oso Memory Profiler will notify you with a different Upgrade Dialog. This will usually occur when we bump the major version number of the Oso Memory Profiler. All major revisions of all Oso Corporation products can co-exist on a single machine without affecting each other, so you can always try out new features without breaking your current installation.
Just choose one of the options presented to you in the dialog and click OK to continue.
As before, you can click on the Change Log button to view more information about the new version.
