It would be helpful if Vassal checked if a new version was available when it is initially launched and alerted the player.
Similarly, it might be helpful if when a module launched, the Vassalengine.org module library was checked and alert the player if a new version is available. (or even have a notation on the Vassal launch screen next to each loaded module (i.e., new version available)).
IMHO either or both of these would help keep people reasonably current w/ bug fixes and improvements.
There are lots of modules that aren’t hosted on VASSAL’s library. In addition, there are plenty of modules with bizarre or inconsistent versioning schemes and/or competing versions (sometimes all hosted on the same wiki page).
Hmm, it’s possible that I never noticed because I update frequently…
That being said, I have both 3.6.6 and 3.6.7 on my system. When I launch 3.6.6 (preference is checked) it doesn’t alert me to a new version available… Is that because it’s smart enough to recognize I already have the newest version installed?
