Thanks Henry and Charlie,

I didn’t realize that was by design. I thought the “Check for Test Builds” would show me the most recent build. I’ll just visit the updates site to look for new builds, as part of my daily habit now.

Best regards,

Meanwhile the suggestion was made here to use the archive for latest builds of a more experimental nature for the interim. Does that fill in the holes of the release numbering?

I have updated builds a couple times recently and this is still happening. I’m not sure when it started. Any suggestions appreciated._______________________________________________
