Automatic 'Check for Updates' feature

Reported by: douglas Assigned to: anonymous
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.5
Component: Admin Interface Version:
Severity: feature Keywords:


Campsite should have an automatic 'check for updates' feature that would ping a server at Campware to check if it is running the latest version. If it is not, the admin user should have a message displayed showing

- current version installed - the version available - a link to more info on the version available - a link to download the newest version - voluntary information about the instance if the user wants to report it

This feature could also provide reporting on the number of Campsite installations there are because it could include a unique identifier for the Campsite instance, which would be anonymously reported to a Campware server.

If the user decides to fill out the voluntary information, this information could automatically be fed to a new 'Who's using' page.

'Check for Updates' could be installed and turned on by default, but users should have the ability to shut if off.
