I have version 4.1.0.56 / 1.0.867 installed. When I ran "check for updates" it didn't find anything.  

From what I can figure out looking at release history at https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045570313-Malwarebytes-for-Windows-update-April-2020 I'm ok.

However, when I visited https://fileforum.betanews.com/ it listed version 4.1.1.149.  This, I assume is beta. I am not interested in testing beta so I didn't download and install.

However, I went to the main MB site https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium/ and downloaded the MBSetup.exe file for the heck of it.  I checked properties / details for the file and it showed me 4.1.1.149.  

So now I wonder do I have the latest stable version installed (4.1.0.56) and the update simply hasn't been released (which might be 4.1.1.149) yet so I can't update my system or do I have a beta version (4.1.1.149)?

Thanks.

Two more questions...why doesn't the update feature in MB update my version to the newest version?  Or do I always have to download and install the latest version manually?  I guess three questions - should the Release History and News for April reflect the fact there is a new version or are they folks just "late" in posting?  I get really confused with MB trying to keep the versions straight so I'm just trying to understand how this all works.  Thanks (again).

OK - I installed the new version.  The one where the file properties show version 4.1.1.149. No issues.  I open MB and go to "About" and the version number is 4.1.0.56.  Go figure.  I have no idea whether or not I have the latest production version.

That is just the install file properties. It has nothing to do with the actual program version. When run, It downloads whatever the current release version is. In this case it is 4.1.0.56.

You are current. 875 is the Beta. Ignore those type of sites when it comes to versions.
