Did you mean to be able to see upfront that a particular update available is recognized by SUMo as being of beta status? That's what I'd like to see.

0001260 is a complement idea (per file beta version activation/deactivation).

For me this is the same as 1260
Good idea but not easy to implement.

Will be done :)

Not sure about Flubber's idea exactly, but mine is totally different from 0001260. Let's say I have globally enabled "Beta version" support. That doesn't mean that all the latest versions offered are necessarily Betas, some are stable Releases and some are not. Before I actually go all the way looking for and downloading them, I'd like to clearly see this mentioned in the GUI on every entry. This would help me to quickly decide whether I need to bother with upgrading a particular product or not (say I have a stable product and SUMo offers me new beta, or I have a beta and SUMo offers me newer stable version -- these are completely diff. situations and should be clearly distinguishable upfront).

PRODUCT....|...|Version............|.Update
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Firefox.......|...|15.0................|.Update available (16.0 BETA)
foobar2000.|...|1.1.14 (BETA)...|.Update available (1.1.15)

Regarding my previous post: I don't think SUMo can recognize beta-versions for installed apps, so it could be dropped for now -- that is, try to beta tag only offered updates.

I guess I'll open a separate bug for that.

I agree : display of beta on client side is a totally different issue (and is it really useful ?)

Do you think that "beta-update" should have a dedicated pictogram (Beta sign ?) rather than current "star" icon ?

yes an B for beta

This deserves a dedicated issue.
Would you like to have it open ?
