    LMS Update Message

    Running Logitech Media Server Version: 8.0.0 - 1586295499 @ Tue Apr 7 23:43:02 WEDT 2020 on Windows 10

    I see a message at the bottom of the main screen: A new version of Logitech Media Server is available. (Click here)

    When I click here, I get:

    Software Updates
    Home > Software Updates
    An updated version of Logitech Media Server is available and ready to install.
    A new version of Logitech Media Server is available.
    More

    I'm thinking that clicking on More should offer to install the "available and ready to install" new version, but instead I get the github changes page:

    https://github.com/Logitech/slimserv...its/public/8.0

    Is this what it's supposed to do?

    I've been downloading and manually installing new versions for many years, but when I see a message that a new version is available, I expect some kind of automatic installation, or at least a link to a download page.

    Yes. On Windows you should get a notification from the tray icon, which
    would allow you to trigger the update.

    Thanks! The tray icon is hidden, and I don't remember seeing a notification, but when I click on it the Install option is shown.

    Would it be worth adding a note on the Software Updates screen just after the new version notices: "Click on tray icon for install option" (or whatever's appropriate for other platforms)
