SpaceClaim 2016.1 Check for updates

Haven’t posted about SpaceClaim in awhile, but man, this most recent version is brutal. Performance is the absolute pits and the program frequently locks up. Still trying to get to the bottom of everything, but will probably have to go back to the previous version. This is doubling concerning as SpaceClaim announced that they weren’t necessarily going to make their file format backward compatible anymore. (I think I am remembering this right from a recent webinar).

One thing I’ve noticed while poking around is that SpaceClaim will ping an update server (updater.spaceclaim.com which ultimately resolves to zipservers.com) regardless of whether or not the ‘Check for software updates’ option is checked.

Startup

You can manually disable this behavior by adding a setting (“ForceOfflineActivation” -> true) to your config file, but really? Why should I have to do that?
