Requirements for Contributing a Bug Fix

Identify the Bug

Fixes #18559.

Description of the Change

The Windows-specific AutoUpdater class had a method that was not returning the result of a delegated call, which was causing it to erroneously enter the "unsupported" state when core.automaticallyUpdate was set to "false".

Alternate Designs


Possible Drawbacks


Verification Process

Set core.automaticallyUpdate to "false". Launch Atom on Windows and open the About window. The "Check now" button and "Automatically download updates" checkbox should be visible.

Release Notes

  • Fixed a regression that caused Atom to believe it couldn't automatically update on Windows while core.automaticallyUpdate was set to "false".
