An announcement thread will no doubt be posted when it is released. The final release is overdue, but there is no point releasing software before known (significant) bugs are fixed. Scheduled release dates are always subject to change. Asking for another release date is pretty pointless, as it won't be released until its ready, and when it is, we will be told.

Bhikkhu Pesala, I am not begging for a new Version. The Point is that v.2.0039.2 Final is available via Live-Update. After Installation it's still v.2.0039 RC2.
The Portable Version is v.2.0039.2 Final.

Tracker Software should improve their Update-System, because it is not the first Time, that a wrong Version is available via Live-Update.

As anounced here, the problem with the update system is known and the behaviour will change in future ;)

I can fully understand the "problem with the Update System".

I cannot, however, understand why someone at Tracker can't simply change the Last Update date on the download page so that it is accurate. Currently, it's reads "30 Aug, 2008" for Viewer and that is where the confusion arises for me. I click on the download link in the belief that a new build has been released, get a file that reads something like PDFXVwer.zip, download and install it only to find out it's the same build I already have.

The resolution here is far too easy; ensure that the date listed under Last Update is accurate (if it isn't, simply change it) OR provide a more descriptive file name (e.g. PDFXVwerRC2.zip).

Also, I've noted another issue with respect to updates. Perhaps it's just me but it certainly seems that downloading via Live Update is slower than downloading directly from the link on the download page.........definitely not the behavior I would expect nor what I've experienced with other software that has a built-in update feature.

Just tested:

- got version 2.39.2 over live-update
- downloaded version from homepage: It's still 2.39 RC2

Please update download server so that we can download newest build.
Where can I see a changelog?

Idea: Show version number on first page of xchange viewer installer. So everybody could see which version it is.

By the way, I saw that some things aren't translated yet into german. Where can I get a fully translated language file?

Hi,

RE: Build 2.039 (final)

It seems that Vista users who are not set as the Administrator (if you are the only user and have UAC set on (user access control) - you do not have full admin rights, even though it might say 'Admin' in the control panel) then you will need to download and install manually from :

http://www.tracker-software.com/PDFXVwer.zip

we are working on a revised MSI installer that will resolve this and not require admin rights - but this will take a little time.

The German (and other Lang Translations) will be available as soon as provided by our respective translator's.

Thanks
