Addon Update Notifier

xF2 Add-on Addon Update Notifier 1.1.6

No permission to download
In this update we added support for XoN's special versioning format.

There was a small bug with this change so when he released a new version for an add-on that made the switch from the correct versioning format to his own, our system didn't map it correctly directly (it would've done it on the next release of the same add-on).

This has now been fixed and updates for XoN's add-ons should be sent correctly again
By default (since this update) the download button has been set to download directly from if possible. This release adds the option to prefer downloading from developer's own site if it exists.
If a download link allows direct downloading from the Xenforo resource page, send the browser there instead of the developer's resource page.

This is a UX improvement since most owners are likely already logged into XF, while on the developers own sites' they might not even have an account.
Don't show version/download/changelog info in the "Upgradeable" box.
(When FTP uploading zip archive with new version)
Some phrases had been added during development when we tested the 90-prefix in versioning.

This release resets them to be on version 1010391 rather than previous wrong value of 901000070
Some forum owners seem to have missed the detail about setting up an API key for the add-on to work, so we now also show a message at the top of the add-on page so they notice it at some point
  • Show info if your forum is blocking the callback about new updates
    • This message can be disabled in the add-on options

  • AUN is not counted when showing the used amount add-ons from the limit
    • The backend already had this, but frontend didn't correctly indicate it.
  • Exclude legacy add-ons, thanks @SeToY
    • Not checked
    • Not counting toward limit
    • Not showing any indicators
  • Added a missing ? to phrase, thanks @Nicolas FR
With the update to automatically push out add-on updates to forums as they are noticed it can become a bit spammy (oops)

Now possible to set the Notification Interval in the add-on options:
  • Instantly
  • Hourly
  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Changed the alert text from Addon Update is available to Releases a new version of an installed add-on to make more sense in the context
  • Hide the alert preference if alerts are disabled for all admins in the options
