Feature request: postpone check of new version

Post by jan_bar » Wed May 30, 2018 9:07 am

Hi,

for several SW I have installed, SUMo reports that new version is available but it is not public, I cannot download it. It could be canary release or private build that will later be public. One such example is DropBox. Also I don't want to see that there is an update from the day one it was published. It is usually not a good idea to install new version right away, it could be buggy.

For the reasons above I suggest you add new option "postpone notification of new version" that will have configurable days, default will be 0 days as it is now. When I set it to 14 days, and I run Check, SUMo will tell me there is new version only after 14 days the new version was known.

Kind regards and thank you for your tool, Jan

This is already possible : Right click > Skip Update > 1 day / week / month / forever.

Yes, I know and I use it. But it skips only particular update, and does that for SW selected. I want see all the updated SW only after some delay. Say DropBox publishes new canary release today and when I check with SUMo today, I will get notification about this version. However the version is not yet public, I cannot update my DropBox. With this setting set to 14 day, SUMo will say my DropBox is up to date. Only after 14 days it will tell me, there is new DropBox version.

Thank you, Jan

So you just want a "constant delay on all notifications" ?

Yes, any notification on new version should be delayed for specific number of days after the new version was introduced. For any item lets imagine I set this to 14 days:

version 1.2 released 06/05/2018 -> I will get notification from 06/25/2018
version 1.3 release 06/10/2018 -> I will get notification from 06/31/2018

When I run SUMo on 06/25/2018, I will get notification about version 1.2 even when the 1.3 was already released.

The behavior should be as if you add the release date + <constant delay> into your server database.

Thank you, Jan

OK, that's clear.
May I propose that you open a feature request on our open bug tracker ?
