Automatic updates

GeoTransformer tries very hard to keep itself up to date. Every time it is started it connects to its server to check if a new version has been made available. If a new version is available, it will download it automatically and install as soon as GeoTransformer is closed. The next time you start it you will be using the new version.

If GeoTransformer is updated it will display release notes on launch. No data is lost between updates.
