Suggestion for the Download page



  • Right now the Power Archiver download page says that the latest (english) version is 11.62 dated 2/4/2010. But if you download the installer from the download page, you get a file that says 2/6/2010 in its digital signature. So I guess the installer for 11.62 has been updated for some reason since the first stable 11.62 version was released. 😉

    My suggestion is to make these small changes more visible from the download page. Let’s say the first 11.62 version that was released on 2/4 was 11.62.03. Why not show that whole version number, instead of just 11.62? Maybe the installer dated 2/6 is actually something like 11.62.04? It would be cool for that to be visible on the download page, complete with the date that this latest version was released, so we could know whether there are new stable releases, even with just minor updates to the current version (like 11.62), just by looking at the download page. A change log wouldn’t hurt either - what’s different between the first 11.62 released on the 4th and this newest one dated on the 6th?

    Anyways, just a suggestion! Keep up the good work, PA team. 🙂

    there was no reason beneficial to the end user, which is why date is the same ;-).

    If there was an “good” reason, we would have made it known via download page and of course facebook/twitter…

    Oh, okay, thanks! 🙂

    I guess there’s just some small fix or internal thing then that required a minor update to the installer file or something.
