Change Log

Below is a “sanitized” version of the Install Manager change log. This information is posted as part of a conscious effort to be more transparent in the development process. Not all information relating to a particular build is presented on this page - some information is still considered private and is therefore not included.



General Release Channel

Private Build Channel

This is the channel where the builds that are not considered “production ready” yet are provided for testing by a select group of individuals that represent the user-base and serve as the “front line” or the “canary in a coal mine” for a time before the build is promoted. This channel typically provides a build that is in the BETA phase of development, but technically can provide a build in the ALPHA phase.

  • Source maintenance
  • Updated OS call to fetch memory info on Windows; addresses stated potential for OS to provide inaccurate information > 4 GB; produces identical results in practice
  • Filter bit architecture when performing an application command

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.56


  • Source maintenance
  • An “application” command now considers the status of the package_id (if specified), switches to the page that the package is currently on, and causes the “Start Queue/Add to Queue” button on the respective page to update to reflect selection state of the items in the listview
  • Double-clicking an item in the Accounts list of the Settings dialog now behaves the same as if the “Edit…” action was clicked from the context menu
  • Double-clicking a Content Path Shortcut item on the Installation page of the Settings dialog now behaves the same as if the “Edit…” action was clicked from the context menu
  • Double-clicking an item in the Applications list of the Settings dialog now behaves the same as if the “Edit…” action was clicked from the context menu

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.57


  • Source maintenance
  • The Settings icon in the top right corner of the main window now behaves as a menu button; clicking the icon displays a menu with actions relating to the settings/configuration of the application
  • Moved access of the log file from a button within the Settings dialog to an action in the Settings menu
  • Added access of the helper application log file to an action in the settings menu
  • The refresh button tooltip now updates to reflect connection state (and bit architecture)
  • Updated various message text and tooltips
  • The default sort order is now Status: Busy First

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.58


  • Source maintenance
  • Completely revamped the UI/UX for dealing with missing/required application/version/bit paths of failed installs; applications paths can now be defined by the user directly within the Install Errors dialog; the package associated with any application paths defined within the Install Errors dialog are automatically selected in the Ready to Install list, cleared of their previous failure, and wait only on the “Start Queue/Add to Queue” button to be clicked
  • Handling of application path collisions resulting from “application” commands is now handled via custom event in the current application instance instead of application instantiation and argument forwarding
  • Added support for multiple context store IDs to be set for a given install application widget; preparation for install sets
  • The order of “Sort Order” options in the Ready to Download/Ready to Install/Installed pages, the settings/keys used to record the selected “Sort Order” options, and the values that represent a given “Sort Order” option in recorded settings, have changed; “Status : Busy First” has been moved to the top of each “Sort Order” option list; “Status : Busy First” is the default for each “Sort Order” option list; “Sort Order” options are now recorded as their respective enumerated values instead of their position within the list - this resolves an issue where a “Sort Order” option was not restored to its previous value if its position in the list changed; restoration of a “Sort Order” option wihtin a list is now based on enumerated value instead of string comparison - this resolves an issue where a “Sort Order” option was not restored to its previous value if the string/translation value changed
  • The Install Errors dialog now provides an “Attempt Re-install” option that is revealed/displayed when an application path for a failed install is defined within the dialog; when checked (default), packages associated with application paths that are defined within the dialog are automatically added to the install queue (and the queue is started if needed) when the dialog is closed

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.59


  • Source maintenance
  • Changed label of “Attempt Re-Install” option in the Install Errors dialog to “Re-attempt Install” in order to better reflect what the option does; “Re-Install” of a package already has a defined meaning
  • Updated inline help for various widgets to reflect current operation/functionality
  • Fixed an issue that caused the down-arrow for the Version and Bit (Architecture) options in Application Path widgets to not be drawn
  • Fixed styling inconsistencies in the error list dialog
  • Fixed a size initialization issue in the error list dialog
  • Formally split the “Settings…” action in the new Settings menu into “Basic Settings…” and “Advanced Settings…” actions; accessing basic settings no longer depends on holding the Ctrl/Cmd modifier when accessing the advanced settings
  • Incremented version to 1.3.0.0

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.3.0.1
