Hi everybody, I just want to confirm the issue with the latest update… As many of you reported to me, there was indeed an infinite-update loop (on Windows only; Mac was fine) in the latest version, released yesterday…
If you launched Shaxpir 4.4.2, it would correctly detect that the 4.4.3 version had been released, and it needed to download the new installer.
But then it would download the 4.4.2 installer instead.
So of course, after running the new installer and re-launching the program, Shaxpir would (again!) detect that you needed to download the 4.4.3 update. If you fell down this rabbit-hole, you would just keep re-installing 4.4.2 over and over again, for the rest of your life
Needless to say, I feel pretty foolish about that…
The problem has been fixed now, both on the https://shaxpir.com/download page, and in the downloader built into the desktop application. I’m so sorry for all the frustration and confusion!
Many many heartfelt thanks to the people who reported the issue, and who persisted even while I gave non-helpful instructions how the downloader normally works. I appreciate you!
