Newsletter/Notification for Far Stable Releases?

Post by Soyuz »

Hello!

Is there a way I can be automatically be notified when there is a new Far stable release?

E-Mail-Newsletter? Subscription to a specific Sub-Form or Forum-Thread? "Watch" Releases on Github? I only want stable release, not nightly.
Even in russian would be OK, because I might at least read a version number somewhere in the text.

For the past years, I have been manually checking the Far Website ca. once a month to see if there is a new stable release.

Kind regards,

See plugin UpdateEx.
Plugin suggests updating if there is a new version when FAR Manager starts

I doubt it makes any difference between “stable” and nightly builds.

What makes you think it can flag only “stable” builds?

I guess he asks for something similar to rss/atom https://github.com/FarGroup/FarManager/releases.atom.

Indeed, it is quite useful for people monitoring new releases. It could be more useful, if a release issuer marks a particular release as a stable one.
