Automatic Background Updates


#1

With the ioquake3 project we have an issue getting updates, especially security fixes, to users in a timely manner across major desktop platforms. I wrote more about that, and the reasoning behind it, here:

When I last looked there wasn’t a good free software cross-platform solution for automatic background updates similar to modern browsers and games like League. Has anyone here developed their own, or used someone else’s SDK to solve this problem?

Just to update this for anyone who was also interested in a modern solution, icculus solved it. Check out the work in our blog post: https://ioquake3.org/2017/07/13/auto-update-update/
