[Added] Show release date in update dialog

It would be nice to see the release date of portable apps in the update dialog.

I prefer to wait a few weeks before an update, as considerated more stable. We know that rev2 rev3 can happen, thats not a problem as errors/missing are a natural thing. I wont comply about that, portable apps are free, based on volunteers and I am very happy about these ppl, they are doing an amazing job.

I just would like to see the date an update was released.

Not Planned, Revs a Bit Different

This isn't planned at the moment for spacing issues in the UI. I don't want to introduce horizontal scrolling. It's also not really the most useful information. And I don't recall another store updater that displays this (iOS, Android, Microsoft App Store, Linux, etc).

Holding off to see if a Rev may seem like the right idea at first glance, but Revs are generally to address an ongoing issue with an app. Often something that was seen in the last couple releases but hadn't been reported yet. And sometimes to address an actual new release by the publisher, for example the Sysinternals apps which semi-frequently get a new release/rebuild with the exact same version number. I'd say maybe only 20% of Revs are to address an immediate issue that was introduced in a new version of an app.

All that said, lemme check it out. I'm doing some updater work now in prep for the next release, so I'll see what I can do.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Is it in the beta for version 20? Never saw it before, as far as I can recall.

Ok

Ok, it's working as expected right now. I need to check it in high DPI modes to be sure, though.
