I got a pop-up saying that a new version of the add-in is available. Why?
Periodically, SPIDER updates the add-ins with new features or fixes to minor problems. The Automatic Notification and Update feature allows SPIDER to automatically notify you when an updated version of our software is available so that you can install it right away.
Updates to our add-ins help ensure that the add-ins work properly and may contain important security changes. SPIDER recommends that you update to the latest version of the software whenever a new version is available, especially when a security update is mentioned. Although you may choose whether to receive automatic notification of updates and how frequently to receive them, SPIDER is not responsible for errors or security problems that occur because the version of the add-in on your computer is not the most current one available.
