Oxide auto-update check frequency.

Post by Findles » Thu Nov 16, 2017 2:08 pm

The last 2-4 weeks it seems as though it has been taking longer for Oxide to update after it has been pushed by Wulf. In the past I found it to be max 15-30 mins. Now it seems closer to an hour. When I ask support, I'm told the update process is automatic and then the Oxide update finally appears. I'm left wondering if I just had to wait 1 more minute, or if it was triggered manually.
As it stands, at this moment it has been 55 minutes and counting.
Just hoping for some clarification and maybe this is something that needs to be fixed.

I posted an event to the control panel about why Oxide releases often don't go smoothly.

In a nutshell, it comes down to frequent changes by the Oxide team that have repeatedly broken our automatic updating tool, combined with mistakes they've made with the released files themselves. Whenever the automatic tool doesn't work, we have to go in and determine why, then manually roll out the right version -- and that manual work unfortunately takes time =\.
