Bug report #5160

Error when checking for updates

Added by David Quinn over 10 years ago. Updated over 8 years ago.

Category:Documentation and Help
Affected QGIS version:2.0.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:14912


When I click 'Help' -> 'Check QGIS Version' I get a windows that tells me the version I am using. Even if it is the most recent version it still has the line
'Visit http://download.qgis.org to get your copy of Version 1.7.4'. This is the version that I am using.

I think it would make more sense to say 'You are using the most recent version of QGIS - no current updates' or something similar.
