macOS Auto Upgrade

odrive is the only app I need to download manually every few weeks. I’d like to either see it auto-upgrade or see it in the macOS app store.

Hi @davidmarkgitman ,
We have an auto-updater but we push out with it less frequently than we release. The last one we pushed out was on April 14th.

We do this just in case there are any issues that may not be caught during QA but are reported in the field after release. It is difficult to catch everything in-house because of the vast variability of user environments, storage, and use cases. We prefer to err on the side of caution with our auto-updates, unless there is something urgent that needs to go out.

Whilst I agree with erring on the side of caution 100%, perhaps the auto-updater could be changed to feature different ‘channels’? Perhaps a ‘stable’ branch and ‘latest’ branch as with many other updaters? I just want to get the latest and greatest excellence from you guys!
