Checking for Application Updates

WinSCP can check for its updates. It can do it on your request or automatically in regular intervals.

To check for updates, WinSCP connects to WinSCP site. It sends its version and language. In addition to obtaining information about new version, it can get a message. This will be particularly used to warn users about security issues in advance, before a fix can be released.
