I tried to use the Check for updates menu item to upgrade ver. 1.27 but it told me that there were no updates and I already had the latest version so I had to download and install manually.

The last few updates, previous to this one, were spotted and downloaded automatically. Is that funtionality broken now?

Is this the right place to report this or should I put it in the Bug Report forum?

Version 1.27 was the first stable release to include bitcomet 64bit, and the installer contained both versions. This created some issues with automatic update, so version 1.28 issues separate installers for the 32bit and 64bit versions.

Unfortunatly, some users will need to manually update to get past this problem, but hopefully once your version 1.28 is successfully installed, all further updates can be done automatically.

ps. No need for a bug report, the issue is known, and hopefully resolved.
