The good news about the update

You may not have noticed, but the size of the update for 3.1 is about a half MB. Previous updates have been the whole ball of wax - that is, the whole UFTree.EXE and maybe more for the ancillary programs. This time they have it arranged as a true "patch" where mostly only the changes are provided. Saves one heck of a lot of download time! UFT28UP was over 6MB, 12 times as big.

I suggested this new type of update to them a couple of years or more back, as I saw it was very effective in updating the old QMODEM system. The bug this time apparently is in how they set it up; hopefully when fixed we can all enjoy an easier download and fix.
