|Summary||0005000: Change links for update pages in SUMo Pro|
|Description||I thought that main advantage for SUMo Pro is to quickly and easily find and download latest updates, but when I started to do it I found that from more than hundred software only 12 links went to download pages. Others either went to main page or went nowhere.|
For those that went to main page in some cases it was taking a lot of time to find correct page where I can download updates.
E.g. Microsoft products went only to Microsoft.com.
I prepared for you an Excel table with links to update pages for programs I used.
In some cases you need to take into consideration version numbers, architecture (x86/x64) and type of release (public, beta) to correctly provide link to update page.
There are 2 not so official links and there are 2 programs which have 2 different links. You could choose which to use.

Did you update links?
Why this task is still open?
||Some links yes, but i've not checked that full list is done. That's why I keep it open for the time being.|
||Still working on it.|
Not all proposed links are adequate as language dependant although the tools and users are sitting in different countries with different languages. In these cases, it may be worth a trial if removing the language-specific section of the proposed URL leads to a global download resp. choice of language.
Some proposed links are version specific and hence aren't appropriate for SUMo update behaviour. But it may be possible that the same publisher organization has changed to a different release and storage model in the mean-time becoming version independant.
Distinction between 32-bit and 64-bit edition shouldn't be a problem and SUMo may use edition specific URLs as products are stored with this difference too. But is the SUMo server data design taking this distinction into account too for URLs?
Often I see the URLs attached to the publishing organization instead of the product!
If product specific URLs exist, then I consider such a design as a bug requiring redesign and fix.
Some products and URLs don't exist anymore, i.e. some development versions of Java VM or have changed product organization (Java no longer being released by Oracle as VM but as SDK instead with the VM just a component).
Have you checked progress as the lists had about 100 entries together?
