For the auto-update feature of my installer to work, I need a stable URL pointing to an “updates.xml” file, always in the latest release.
According to https://docs.github.com/en/github/administering-a-repository/linking-to-releases ,
the latest release has the suffix
/releases/latest (and it works), and the link to a specific file in the latest release should be of the form
However, that part does not seem to work, because I’m getting a 404 on
I noticed that links to a file in a specific release has the last two parts swapped (‘download’ before version), like the following:
… /releases/download/0.2.0/updates.xml (works)
so based on that observation, I tried:
but it doesn’t work either.
What is the correct way to point to the “updates.xml” file in my latest release ?
(sorry had to truncate some links because new users are only allowed 2 links per post)
