Not a huge deal, but "check for updates" within GPGMail preferences results in a prompt to download a much older version (see screenshot).

    Hi Seth,

    ha, that's not good for sure.
    Could you please open Terminal.app, type the following line (press enter afterwards):

    defaults read /Library/Application\ Support/GPGTools/GPGMail_Updater.app/Contents/Info.plist CFBundleVersion

    the same with this time line

    defaults read org.gpgtools.gpgmail UpdateSource

    Ah ok, that explains it.
    If you actively select a "channel" in GPGPreferences' Updates tab our tools will stick to that channel unless changed. So to fix this, simply change the channel to Pre-release and you will only see beta versions.
    I think however that we should update this behaviour, since it doesn't make sense to honor that option, if the beta permanently prompts for a downgrade to stable.

    Makes total sense (both the explanation and the enhancement). Thanks for the help!
