Make the updater less intrusive #751
This is more of a request than a bug report, but please, make the auto-updater less intrusive. Right now it's seriously making me consider turning off automatic updating.
The problem is that when QOwnNotes finds an update, it pops up a dialogue saying that there's an update. That's good and all, but the problem is that it will take focus, meaning that if you're playing a video game or watching a movie (especially in exclusive fullscreen mode) you will now need get up and alt+tab back which can be quite an annoyance especially when the application gets an update what seems to be every other day (I'm not saying frequent updates are a bad thing, but combined with the intrusive pop-up, it can get a bit annoying).
Perhaps a better option would be to instead show the dialogue when QOwnNotes is opened from tray or otherwise properly focused. I certainly think that would be better UX than the current system.
Note: I'm using Windows 10.
