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

This is the channel where the “production ready” build is distributed to the general public.

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.

  • Installation of packages that install like a plugin are now delayed if packages that install like software are in the download queue; this change addresses an issue where packages that install like a plugin would fail to install (or appear as though they had failed) because a package for software that it is a plugin to had not been installed first; this stems from a deeper issue where because plugin packages are typically much smaller in size than software packages, despite both being in the queue and the software package starting before plugin packages, the plugin packages downloaded much faster and were therefore installed before the software package downloads could complete
  • Added “Delete Partial Package(s)” menu and options to the context menu for incomplete package downloads on the Ready to Download page; deletes partial download files from the package archive
  • The checked state of the “Display Hidden” option on the Ready to Download page is now persistent between sessions
  • Added a “Display Hidden” option to the Ready to Install page; this option functions in the same fashion as the similarly named option on the Ready to Download page, except it applies to packages that have been downloaded; checked state is persistent between sessions; a package's hidden state is universal, hiding a package on the Ready to Download page does not change if the package is then downloaded and likewise hiding a package on the Ready to Install page does not change if the package is then deleted
  • Added “Hide Package(s)” and “Unhide Package(s)” menus and options to the context menu for packages on the Ready to Install page
  • Fixed minor inconsistencies between entries in context menus for the Ready to Download and Ready to Install pages

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.7


  • Added a “Restore Default” action to the context menu for the “64-bit Software Base” setting on the Installation page of the Settings dialog
  • Added a “Restore Default” action to the context menu for the “32-bit Software Base” setting on the Installation page of the Settings dialog
  • Fixed an unintended change to the labeling of 64-bit/32-bit Software paths in the Details panel on the Ready to Download and Ready to Install pages
  • Fixed an issue where canceling the Settings dialog after having changed whether or not General Tool Tips and/or Product Info Tips are displayed did not restore the previous state
  • Added a simplified/subset version of the Settings dialog for display to first-time users
  • First-time users are now prompted for whether or not they would like to view/change download/installation paths prior to starting the automated download/install queue
  • Clicking the Help button in a window now opens a URL that is more specific to the window containing the button that was clicked

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.8


  • Fixed styling of the simplified/subset version of the Settings dialog on macOS

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.9


  • Download of packages that provide CMS functionality are now prioritized over all others; except application updates
  • Installation of packages that do not provide CMS functionality are now delayed until after packages in the download or install queues that do; if the CMS is to be installed, it should be installed prior to any other package that may cause addition/manipulation of data in the database

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.10


  • Auto-Download/Install based on remote action (i.e., first-time users) now uses the standard queuing mechanisms instead of directly manipulating the products
  • Fixed an issue where a failed download/install during auto-download/install would cause the application to enter into an infinite loop that the user could not exit without force quiting

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.2.0.11
