    I found that you have to do a Manual update in pcp to get it to switch over to the new version. So, looking at the stable.xml, it showed 8.1.2, but checking for updates showed no new version, although I was on the last 8.1.1 nightly. Just doing a manual update in pcp pulls 8.1.2, and I assume will now pull the 8.1.2 nighties.

    It seems like the "is there a new nightly" check doesn't work across versions, but just doing one manual update does the switch.

    Stable and Development are work in process branches that get updates.

    When a new release is made, the other branches may not exist yet. Whatever the xml returns is what you get.

    Code:
    release) "http://downloads.slimdevices.com/releases/latest.xml"
    stable) "http://downloads.slimdevices.com/releases/nightly/stable.xml"
    devel) "http://downloads.slimdevices.com/releases/nightly/dev.xml"
    To misquote Douglas Adams
    "Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word 'stable' that I wasn't previously aware of."

    Thanks, that does seem to be the case.

    Lms has never(at least a very long time) changed version numbers through the internal update notifier.

    It will always be a manual step.

    I am pretty sure I got updates continuously from 7.9.2 to 7.9.3 to 7.9.4 without manually updating.

    Pcp Update to LMS 8.1.2

    It would if you stuck with "the release version" (currently 8.1.1).
    You'd then get the next release automatically. But you should never have
    gone from dev branches to dev branches beyond a release.
