[QGIS-Developer] New version notifications

Cory Albrecht
Why does QGIS alert about newer versions before the version is even available in something like the Debian/Ubuntu repos at http://qgis.org/ubuntu-nightly-release ?

It takes the version status from QGIS.org not from the repositories. When the actual package arrives depends on your package repo etc.

On that occasion:

how can I deactivate the new version information? I get frequent calls
from my users asking if they need to do something. It's kind of annoying
because we use LTS.

Re: New version notifications

Etienne Trimaille
In QGIS Settings -> "General", you can disable "Check QGIS version".

If you are deploying QGIS with an INI file, you can do it programmatically. You can hide this checkbox because QGIS version is managed by the system administrator.

In my view, this should be DISabled by default, and being asked (at
startup?) if the user wants this.

It is actually a 'phone home' mechanisme, which I personally dislike
(even if developers developed it as 'service for users').

Quickmapservices plugin does the same (and stalls QGIS till timeout if
you network/proxy issues).

Richard Duivenvoorde

Re: New version notifications

Interestingly our web stats tracker shows version.txt being hit 57.5 million times in 2018 - which is a pretty useful indication of the amount of usage QGIS gets. Even if you divide that by 365 it would reflect around 157428 daily active users*.


* Assuming awstats can be believed to be a true reflection of users using QGIS and not bots etc.

For me I am fine making it opt-in if that is what others prefer….

Re: New version notifications

Alexandre Neto
Hi!

Could we know more about those downloads, like for example their OS? I believe that is probably a better guess of our user base than the downloads.

Thanks

Hi

Those are just pings against version.txt - we could probably trawl the apache logs to get OS etc….

Nope, just the version:

Oh yeah - silly me - I forgot QGIS was the user agent.

Thanks

Re: New version notifications

Except I got the package from QGIS's *own* repo, as I indicated. If QGIS is going to be alerting me that there is a new version, shouldn't that new version be available in the QGIS repo?

It takes the version status from QGIS.org not from the repositories. When the actual package arrives depends on your package repo etc.

Why does QGIS alert about newer versions before the version is even available in something like the Debian/Ubuntu repos at http://qgis.org/ubuntu-nightly-release ?

Depends.  If you're using a distribution that doesn't have the necessary
dependencies for the newer version, the newer version will never reach the repo
for that distribution.

But you'll still get the notification about the latest version and in this case
it just means that you not only have to upgrade QGIS to get it.

Re: New version notifications

Stefan Steiger
And for that reason, just use docker, and you don't have that problem.
 ( instead, you might have others ;)   )

Works fine for me with MSSQL-Server 2017 & Viber on Ubuntu 19.04, with OpenSSL 1.1.
