Along with updating to 1.8.3 this enables the auto update feature. New updates will be installed to the users home directory. The launcher protonmail-bridge determines whether to run the default proton-bridge or a newer version if present. In the future this will allow hotfix releases such as 1.8.1 and 1.8.2 to be delivered to the users much faster. Additionally, users can now update to early access releases if they wish to.

Summarized changelog:

  • 1.8.3
    • Fixed a bug with sending encrypted emails to external contacts
  • 1.8.2
    • Hotfix for error during bug reporting
  • 1.8.1
    • Hotfix for crash when listing empty folder
  • 1.8.0
    • Refactor of message builder to achieve greater RFC compliance
    • Implemented connection manager to improve performance during weak connection, better handling of connection loss and other connectivity issues
    • Increased the number of message fetchers to allow more parallel requests - performance improvement
    • Log changes for easier debugging (update-related)
    • Fixed bugs with building of message bodies/headers
    • Fixed incorrect naming format of some of the attachments
    • Removed html-wrapping of non-decriptable messages - to facilitate decryption outside Bridge and/or allow to store such messages as they are

Enabling auto-updates is not acceptable and may result in broken packages or changes that Solus does not want to apply. Needs to be disabled.

No problem. From the discussion in D10644 I got the impression this was OK. I'll disable the updater.

It's a bit annoying though, that the app has lots of buttons and settings related to updated, early access, etc that don't do anything.

I'll have a look, maybe I can somehow disable/patch out the update related options.

Ah wasn't aware of that patch and the comment:

Normally, we would try to disable the automatic updater, but the signing process won't allow us to do it that way.

Gonna get up to speed on it. No need to make any changes yet.

Thanks. All that signing stuff is beyond me, so just let me know what you decide and I will adapt accordingly.
