The short explanation is that the update server is seeing pretty limited use atm. So in light of the low load, I've downgraded the server. That downgrade is still somewhat experimental; I've also noticed a few moments where the new backend just seems to refuse all connections for a minute or two -- which is pretty annoying. If these kinds of service outages do seem to be happening fairly frequently, let me know. I think I may need to switch back to a pricer virtual machine.

Well, I can't update since this morning (tried several times).

Ok. I don't really understand what's going on; but, clearly, the lower-spec server option is having issues. I've just switched us back to the slightly more expensive option. Let me know if that fixes it for you.

Thanks. You can check timing to see if I was updating before or after the switch, but I was able to do so.
Just want to point out that there is a life outside of the AWS. ;)

I'm receiving a yellow "NOTICE" saying that the latest version is 20026 while I'm running 20025 and I need to update. Meanwhile the updater says I'm up to date.

I was able to update from 025 to 026 without a problem. If you delete your version.txt and sis.exe and sis64.exe and re-run update.exe, it should get you back on the latest version.

Hah. It would appear that for a few hours, the private test server's 'stable' build was actually 1 revision behind the current steam release. (Arioch didn't get the warning, because he's on 'dev'). Um, should be fixed now. But... looks like the version warning feature did in fact do what it's supposed to do. You were, in truth, behind the 'official' latest release :)
