Description A. Glez. B. 2015-03-10 14:27:20 UTC
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'.

Sorry for the delay.

As of XS 5.9.6 (build 23) the issue is still present.

As far as I cant tell it is not fixed.
Comment 8 iain 2016-02-12 16:17:26 UTC
That index references Xamarin Studio 5.9.7, what version of Xamarin Studio are you running?
