Erix has announced 15 hours ago a net package update to 1.0.482 but if you download from the website it still downloads the old version of 1.0.463.

Why announce something which is not available yet. I have wasted over an hour trying to get this full installer without success.

It does updater from within the program but this only adds insult to injury.

Hi @AlanChippy

Sorry for any confusion here!

Our component update packages are always released initially as independent updates, separate from our full installers.  These are metered out to our user base over time rather than sent to everyone all at once.  Since these are applied automatically and silently in Malwarebytes, most users don't even realize they've received an updates.  But as khanmein pointed out, you can always manually force the update if you don't want to wait to receive it through the automated process.

Then, typically on the day following the roll-out of the new component package, an updated Malwarebytes full installer with the latest component package already integrated is posted to our website.  So by later this afternoon all the website download links should be updated with new installer that includes 1.0.482.

Hope this helps clarify.

Thanks Becky but would it not be better to have the full installer available before announcing it. After all you do say that it is automatically rolled out anyway to existing installations. Just as a matter of interest it did not do so on my machines and I have 4 licenses until I manually did the update.

It is metered as she mentioned, so it doesn't occur immediately (unless you check manually via the Install Application Updates button as mentioned).  As for the reasoning of publishing the information first, I think it's primarily to inform users monitoring the forums/website for new release info as well as users awaiting bugfixes for specific issues, and of course for any users who do happen to have already received the update to have the information there regarding changes and fixes included in the release.

Publishing the standalone installer comes later, though generally not by much, probably because the first priority is to get it started going out to existing users/customers and their installations, and since it happens silently (unlike major full version releases), many users will receive the update without even being aware until they open the program and notice the changes/fixes and/or new version information and the update, when downloaded through an existing installation, doesn't use the full installer package anyway I don't believe (I think it just downloads the new/changed components and an installation script to replace/install the appropriate files and make any necessary registry modifications and generally doesn't even require a reboot, unlike full version updates/upgrades which use the full installation package and often do require a reboot to complete the install).

It is also possible that the installer might pull down the patch when updating for the first time during/following installation (though I don't believe it's guaranteed/forced as it is with the Install Applications Updates button) as long as the user is online during install (which theoretically they should be if possible anyway, otherwise they're likely to be starting out with a stale set of databases).
