    Hi :D

    I am running Sandboxie paid and under Help, About Sandboxie it shows Version 3.52 (64-bit).

    If I check for updates through Sandboxie none are offered, however, there is mention of later versions on here.

    Can I relax safe in the knowledge that I am running the latest version? :p

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Later 3.53.xx versions are betas. Even number releases are stable versions (3.50, 3.52, 3.54 etc.).

    When a new stable version is out, usually takes a few days
    before its offered through the updater so I always do over
    the top installations. I have never updated from within.
    Sandboxies betas, to me, always work like a charm. I usually
    install them if I experience anything that resembles an issue.
    Right now I am using 3.53.06 and feels great. You can get
    the installers at SBIE forum.

    I don't think of SBIEs betas as betas.

    I probably agree with Bo that Sandboxie "betas" have been shown to be pretty stable in the past. It's up to you whether you want to install the current latest and greatest. That may depend on whether you've got any outstanding issues with 3.52. I haven't, so I've not bothered.

    As far as I know, there's no changelog published for any beta release, but you could follow the 3.53 beta forum for an insight into the work being done: http://www.sandboxie.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=28

    Note also that the 3.54 "stable" release isn't that far off according to a message tzuk posted a few days ago: http://www.sandboxie.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=10101
