    Is it possible to keep a stickied thread with the references of modules updates?

    A first post like this

    Update module: 1037 (20110921)
    Antivirus and antispyware scanner module: 1329 (20111031)
    Advanced heuristics module: 1118 (20110419)
    Archive support module: 1136 (20110818 )
    Cleaner module: 1051 (20110420)
    Anti-Stealth support module: 1026 (20110628 )
    ESET SysInspector module: 1220 (20110517)
    Self-defense support module: 1018 (20100812)
    Real-time file system protection module: 1006 (20110921)

    but kept updated

    Pre-release modules are stickied here.

    However, if you are not running pre-release updates, these module updates can be tracked by you by copy and pasting your system information to a text file or similar media and comparing that against prior changes.

    The sticky for the pre-release modules hasn't been updated for some time, and before that it wasn't always up to date as well.

    those may be ones that were pre-released and then put into production, but I think the OP is asking about "all" the others that are pre-released then pulled back. Because I know for a fact, that list doesnt cover all the pre-released versions.;)

    I am aware of that but I needed to point to something. ESET is aware the pre-release updates sticky is not current. The onus is on the user running a pre-release or non pre-release environment to track them as I described. The steps are fairly simple. ;)

    If you look at my list and compare it with the list at https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=286415 you will see that it seems not all modules pass through a pre-release phase (or at least, that list is not kept updated)

    I don't want to know if my list is different from the one of the day before.
    I just would like to know if some modules updates have come out ;)

    If you always update program components in update > advanced setup, these will be logged. As I previously described, keep a simple text file of these for comparative purposes and to allow you the ability to paste back current system information in discussion threads that require this.

    That doesn't give me the changelog.

    Not changelog, logged events. Logged under Log Files > Events > use all filtering for these so as not to miss any. Log verbosity at a maximum is better than less missing important module updates.

    Like I said, I want a changelog as well to see what's new in the modules, and using the logged events or copying the about window does only give me info when and which module was updated, not what's new/changed. For that we need to rely on the sticky which only shows for pre-release modules and is not up-to-date ;)
    Perhaps Eset could posts changelogs on their website, like they're already doing for new builds, but now for modules.

    Sounds like a future feature request as none of those currently exist.

    When I copy and paste my system information. this is what would normally be displayed.

    Code:
    [b]INSTALLED COMPONENTS:[/b]
    Virus signature database: 6611 (20111108)
    Update module: 1037 (20110921)
    Antivirus and antispyware scanner module: 1329 (20111031)
    Advanced heuristics module: 1118 (20110419)
    Archive support module: 1136 (20110818)
    Cleaner module: 1051 (20110420)
    Anti-Stealth support module: 1026 (20110628)
    SysInspector module: 1220 (20110517)
    Self-defense support module : 1018 (20100812)
    Real-time file system protection module: 1006 (20110921)

    I would only like to know if and when my "components" have been updated.
    The information is not displayed if, after the PC has been switched off, I switch it on after let's say 12 hours and I have also a signature update
    Since such modules updates are not so frequent, I don't think it is too much work for the Mods

    Any hope? :rolleyes:
