Hi Guys,

We are having a weird issue with the releasing our plugin to the update site. The latest release of the installed plugin sometimes does not show up on the client side when doing "Help > Check for Updates" or "Help > Install New Software".

We do releases for our plugin quite frequently (2-3 times a week) and we have been hearing from some of our clients don't see the latest release when they try to update. This does not happen every time but still it is an issue and I would like to know if anyone else has faced this issue? Or are there some settings we are missing when doing the release.

Thanks a lot,

Well, there are a couple of things that can effect updates.

1) your plugin and its containing feature must both have higher versions. Even as long as both of their qualifiers go up, that's good enough.

2) If you have a product involved, that can fix in place the version of your feature for that install. Ex: For eclipse to move from 3.6.1 to 3.6.2, we had to upversion our product to 3.6.2 as well.

3) the more general case for #2 is that your feature has to be a top level (or root) Installable Unit (IU). Any features installed via Help>Install New Software are automatically root IUs. Features installed because they're included in a product or included in another feature are the ones that are not.
