Automatically check for updates

All we have to do to update JDownloader or just check if there is a new version available is double-clicking the icon that shows a planet with arrows on its sides [1]. By doing so, we will see several bars showing the progress of the query [2], and finally we will be notified if there are some patches to apply [3] or not.

After updating JDownloader, we will need to restart the program, so it’s better to do it as soon as we open it. This way we will avoid the interruption of any download in progress.

The components typically updated with each new version of JDownloader are those related to the user interface, stability, Java and captcha detection.

These are powerful reasons to update JDownloader, since it brings more ease of use and the download speed is also boosted.
