Can we have that Update Button?

Post by Theo_Gottwald » Tue Jun 23, 2020 8:33 pm

I have seen there is an button in there where i can switch to a previouse version.
I would instead like a button that will update the OIDIN Denoiser, Luxcore to the newest daily build, and also the Online Libraries.
Again i have the oldest version installed and need to go all these steps. ...
1. Delete the current version
2. Download the new version of Blend Luxcore
3. Install it from new.

And i think i missed something here ... Sharlybg describes it in his video.
In short. Can we have that "Update Button", which will replace the updated files directly somehow from a https:// server?
Yes, its a good idea if its also possible to go back to a lower version - with a buttonclick. But for now to update would be nice.
This also will have the advantage that more people will be on the newest level at the same time.

I have seen that button, was it in Automation-Nodes or in Sverchok?
Anyway i know it must be possible as others have that Button "Jump to newest daily Build" already :-).
You just press it and the computers do that stuff by themselves. Just how users like it.

Dailys builds are something different. They aren't mean for production work and "normal" Luxcore user. They are here for development and testing purposes.
People aren't used to the stable almost bug free Luxcore version. And even those who follow the development closely are sometime not completly safe from headaches with daily build. :mrgreen:

Also the current form allow you to run multiple blendluxcore version at the same time.
