The idea of having an updater is great!
I downloaded and installed it right away, but I'm not sure if it's doing 
the right thing.
Every time I start one of the programs (athena, gifeffit,...) the 
updater accesses the internet and tells me that there are updates 
available. I click on "install updates" and it's downloading and 
unpacking a .exe and a .lib file.
Nothing else seems to change. The version number of ifeffit printed out 
by the "about"-function of athena is still 1.2.2 and on every new start 
of the programs the "updates available" notice pops up again.
Am I doing something wrong?
