Quote1. Um, no. If I care enough to get notifications, it's because I'm not on the forum and it's about pulling me back to the forum when I don't already have it open. That's what a surprising number of users care about. Consider especially this for Android users whose alternative is a native app to get notifications.

They are likely to have more frequent releases.- suggest that we release out software with major known issues (NOT GOING TO EVER HAPPEN)- participate in the process. Download the daily build, install it, use the upgrader, find and report issues on GitHub.- participate in the process. Look at the GitHub list. Develop code to address items on that list. Submit the code to GitHub.
