Pinned topic Why is there no update site / repository to install from

‏2013-01-17T22:28:27Z |
Requiring users to download a zip, extract it, then put the plug-in in drop ins is an archaic installation method.  By providing an update site users can install with just a URL.  Furthermore they can uninstall later, download updates, and understand what dependencies the plug-in has.
 
Having updates available quickly is important.  In the first 2 minutes of trying out the plug-in I hit a string index out of bounds exception.
 
If you need help building the update site, please sametime me.

     Hi Curtis,
     
    Thanks for your feedback - we are aware that the current install process is not great and are currently working on an updated release that will aim to improve the install and update process to make it a lot easier for everyone.
