Auto updates

A brief introduction of the auto-updates feature.

Quark comes pre-built with auto-updates feature. But this feature is only supported in a few distributions.

Auto-updatable distributions

  • MacOS: DMG
  • Linux: AppImage
  • Windows: EXE

Since Quark is currently a beta software, we are shipping updates almost daily. It is highly reccomended that you only download these distributions to get the latest features and bug fixes.

Release channels

We support 2 release channels.

  1. Insiders release: Insiders has the most recent code pushes and may lead to the occasional broken build. New releases are published almost every other day.
  2. Stable release: Only stable releases are published on this channel. This channel may be updated once a month.

By default, your release channel is set to Stable. You will need to change this setting to move to the insiders release.

Selecting the release channel

You can select the release channel from settings. (Settings > General > Auto Updates > Release channel)
