    "Confusing number of updates makes me uneasy"

    April 5, 2013  |   By summerstormpictures


    It works...or does it?


    I've simply become confused as heck over why there are so many updates and why there's simply not an option to automatically do this right in the application. Welcome to the 21st century.


    It works, plain and simple, but as another said before--get it done right the first time. I have never seen this many updates spew in such a short time. I have become uneasy and have begun to wonder why? What could go wrong? Was I at risk? I just don't feel confident and am thankful to have another backup solution running concurrently just in case.

    C|Net has been listing the experimental builds made available in the forums as full versions, hence the rapid-fire releases. This 2.0.5 release is an official build. I've already complained to C|Net about not properly labeling the releases.
