1.4.5 will definitely have a version-checking feature. Click the “check version” menu option, it’ll go to my new version-checking web page and tell it what version it is, and the web page will tell you if it’s the latest or not.
Not exactly high tech, but both extremely non-intrusive and quick & dirty, which is a win all around. (assuming y’all want me working on more tables, the endlessly-delayed Mac version, and other things that are not figuring out how to make TableMaster check for updates)
On a related note, just as sort of an Easter egg, if you click on the TableMaster II logotype in the “about” screen in 1.4.5, it will take you to the Wintertree website.
