When I found out that there was a new client, i tried updating my 1.6 client to the 1.6.2 version. This didn’t work. Normally, i’d say that the 1.6.2 hasn’t been added to the update function everywhere, to spread out the number of people updating at once, to reduce server load. But I noticed this wasn’t the case, because my 1.6 client (in the about tab it said 1.6) displayed this in the update window: “You have the latest version! (1.6.2)”.
So it seems to me that the update function is broken in 1.6, and since the 1.6.2 changelog doesn’t say anything about it, it probably still is. I have updated to 1.6.2 manually by now, but a lot of people probably don’t check the site often, especially when the update function says that there isn’t one. I don’t know if there’s any way to remotely change something which makes 1.6 update, or that it is an issue which only presents itself in some cases, but otherwise, this seems pretty b0rked.
EDIT: I’m sorry that this topic is probably in the wrong subforum, i thought I posted it in the support section instead of feature requests.
