Looking for testers for win32 autoupdates

Version 0.4.11 will include automatic updates for win32. They will be disabled by default, because I would like to perform some testing with a subset of users at the outset. To enable them, set to nonzero win32_updater in web user interface settings page and then click the Save button to save the results.

Testing is already possible before the release of version 0.4.11. Today I have published Neubot 0.4.11-rc1 for Windows, that includes the code for automatic updates on Windows. You just need to install it and set to nonzero win32_updater in web user interface settings page and then click the Save button to save the results. Report to the mailing list or to me directly any bugs and/or weird behavior you observe.

I have tested that a pre 0.4.11-rc1 version of Neubot correctly autoupdates to 0.4.11-rc1 on Windows 7. In the following days I plan to release more release candidates and observe the behavior of Win32 autoupdates on different Windows machines. I will announce every new release candidate on Twitter, so you are informed and you can check whether the autoupdate was successful.

For more information on how automatic updates are implemented, please refer to the commit that merged the code into github repository: https://github.com/neubot/neubot/commit/781ae533
