When Xamarin and Xamarin Studio are updated manually with the installers found in '%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\XamarinStudio-5.0\Cache\TempDownload\' instead of the Xamarin Update, XS keeps prompting for the updates as if XS is not performing a version comparison before displaying the 'Updates have been downloaded and are ready to install.' message.
Expected: Update should clear obsolete installers from 'TempDownload' and 'index.xml'.
Workaround: Delete everything in 'TempDownload'.
This should not happen anymore.
Thanks. I'll test it in the next version.
Sorry for the delay.
As of XS 5.9.6 (build 23) the issue is still present.
As of XS 5.9.7 (build 22) the issue is still present.
It is fixed in 5.10.2
