We're missing the ability to 'auto-update' the builds - right now, to update and pick up the latest, you have to download it from the early access portal.

This is very inconvenient - it'd be ideal to have an auto-update option from the app!

The work required is:

  • Create an endpoint to check for updates (based on a license key)
  • For Windows:
    • Download the installer, verify codesign signature
    • Close the app and run the installer with silent
    • Restart the app
  • For OSX:
    • Integrate squirrel
    • Hook up to installation endpoint / payload
  • For Linux:

Wanted to voice my preference per the 0.5.2 release note - more important to me to have something that plays nicely with NixOS updating than builtin auto-update. Not exactly sure what that would look like, but I think @lobre has taken a look at that in #2311



My 2 cents:
As a (Linux) user, I always prefer OS package managers (like Flatpak (or Snap)) over app-integrated solutions which give me no transparency or opportunity for input.
