    Krishna, is it this issue you're talking about: ?

    Right. It is the fix for the bug#3761655.

    Cool. Might be good to mention that in the article, rather than the somewhat vague ‘Update URL Issue’.

    Also note: that ticket was still flagged as "to fix" last time I checked (earlier this morning).

    Thanks for fixing this, btw.

    I am we need to install the patch if we have version The article does not make that clear - at least not to me.

    No. Build has the mandatory updates built in.

    I hope you get those bugs patched ASAP that were accidentally "left out" of the final build. My code is basically one long comment according to the parser.

    Doesn't seem to work with the Mac. Updated and restarted, but got no icon saying updates available. When I try to manually force an update I get "No repository found at file:/Y:/cf_builder/build/../stage/buildRepo/".

    I'm getting the same error as Kevin on Mac after the update.

    Note that uninstalling Builder 3 and re-installing the latest build worked for me, but the patch process is broken on Mac.
