I just noticed the Syncthing release channel is no longer delivering updates to my Pi running Raspbian. This channel worked until recently; my GUI says I’m on 0.12.11, and no updates are available via apt-get although I see on the ST site that the binary has been updated to 0.12.15
@calmh that would be great. I’m having students deploy Syncthing on Raspberry Pis as a kind of “set it and forget it” sync solution, so the less steps it takes to keep ST continually running and always-upgraded the better.
The notification appeared when I opened the instance in the web GUI, because the binary provided by the repo has been out of date for some time now. But yeah now that I think about it, clicking on that just linked you to the btsync download page, not triggered an apt-get upgrade.
Anyway, not sure if this is feasible but just a thought
I’m just pointing it out because we do both the notification and auto upgrade if you’re running the github releases. When using a package manager we expect the package manager to take care of this, though.
No, please don’t. apt is responsible for that and one could e.g. configure email notifications from apt. I don’t want a Web-GUI which is able to execute shell commands on my server.
Also, I don’t want a GUI which spams me with out of date notifications. On Linux/BSD we have these very nice and shiny package managers which do already the whole work for us. If somebody wants to be notified, there are better, global solutions for that.
edit: Sry jakob, I clicked the wrong button and you were notified by accident.
