Bindu Astrology Software Newsletter
No. 1, June- July 2018
Bindu automatically informs you to keep your software up-to-date with the latest corrections and improvements! Built into Bindu is an automatic updater feature that informs the user when a minor or major update is available. Our policy is to fix any minor and major bug as soon as possible. Therefore, we frequently fix any possible bug, calculation problem, display issue or error messages as soon as reported by users or discovered by our testers and developer team.
Every time you run Bindu, it connects to update server to check for available updates. If there is something new, a message appears and asks your permission to run the updater. If you don’t like to update immediately (for example, you are with a client and do not want to be interrupted), you can postpone updating. Then the update orange Icon shows up on the top bar, and you can run the updater from there later.
When the updater runs, it connects to the server and checks the available updates. After a short time, the name and version of updated files will be listed. By pressing the big button under the form, the download process starts. Usually, for minor updates, it takes only a few seconds. For main parts of the program, it may take one or two minutes depending on your internet bandwidth. You can avoid this process by simply download the installer file and install
Some users had problems running the updater. Some Antivirus programs were preventing the updater from working properly, and we solved this problem by implementing what is called a “code signing certificate.” You need not be concerned about the technical details of this, and the bottom line is that as Bindu software has grown, we are finding solutions to problems that have come up.
We noticed that some astrologers don’t like to distract continuously by receiving update message at startup so, after installing the recent update (Version 22.214.171.124 – 21, May 2018) You will not receive the message box at startup, but the orange notification Icon appears on top to let you know the update is available. Besides, starting with this version a direct link to the latest installer will also be provided so you can decide if to use the online updater or download and install the full package. We usually release a major update bimonthly and describe the changes in the newsletter.
