YourOtherMind uses the Netsparkle updating system to keep the user’s version of YourOtherMind up to date.
The process is fairly simple. When I post new updates, users will be notified of them within a day or so (when they restart YOM) and have the option of updating. Updates may be skipped or delayed.
Additionally, under OPTIONS, there is a feature to get access to beta builds of YourOtherMind. While this is discouraged, I understand some users will always want the latest and greatest. If true, when updates are checked, they will download a beta update (if one is available). Again, this is strongly discourage except for advanced users.
