Default JDownloader initiates updater even when disabled

Title pretty much summarises the issue; JD initiates the updater even though the option in the Settings panel is disabled.

Additionally, JD fails to open Changelog after each update when the option is enabled.

JDownloader ALWAYS updates the plugins, there is no way to turn this off.
Turning the update off only turns MAJOR updates off!

Okay, then I suppose the Changelog only applies to major updates as well?

Right, well.... There you go.

But might I suggest something? Just a thought I had:

When I reach the end of my internet cap, my speed starts to slow down tremendously. And I've noticed that when I'm downloading a file in JD (max. being 20-30kbps), the update starts, which tends to interrupt the download, and even at times, causing it to arrest.

Now, like I said, just as an idea... But would it be possible for a small message to tell the user what the size of the update is before it downloads, so that the user can chose whether to accept or decline? Solely for the purpose that the update would not interrupt the current session, but maybe request that the update can be done the next time JD is loaded?

Just a thought.

Do you mean your downloads are interrupted by updates although your setting "Do not inform me about important updates" is enabled?

This is a change of behaviour since the 974x days. I think it is a mistake to update plugins that are Inited without a restart.

That is just my view as a Java programmer and human interface designer.

The amount of downloaded data for a plugin update is tiny compared to most downloads.

Jiaz has said that it is important to download updates every time JD starts, so we are all using the latest plugins. The way the option is worded is confusing. If the option is ticked, then JD just does the updates more silently. They still will not be effective until the next time JD is started.

If you MUST avoid downloading updated plugins, then set jdupdate to use an SVN tag instead.
