I think the maintainers agree that the problem is for you to solve with your network people.

If you can’t, then upgrading manually is the way forward.

We are not going to add iframes or any other crazy things like that, so I think it stays closed.

Clearly no special mechanism are needed when you can just download the binary, replace it on disk and restart Syncthing. What @bt90 suggested seems like a reasonable ask to me (though about as low priority as it goes):

we could improve the warning though and maybe link to the download page.


yea please do so but i still need a way to update to that version then…

btw, why are you using a not well working microsoft system to handle your malings?

You can go to releases in github, download latest version, replace the old executable.
