Updating to new sneakypeek leaves old one in applications folder
I think i may be doing something wrong when updating to the newest sneakypeek, seeing as i know have 16 different versions of OF in my applications folder. is there no way to keep the number down?

When you update, you are given the option to "Archive existing version."

Is that checked?

hi neil,
i'll have to check that out next time. also, is it safe for me to delete all the 'old' versions? and how do i decipher which ones are 'old' and which one's current?

It's generally safe to delete all the old versions. Since these are Sneaky Peeks, there's a chance that one particular version might be totally buggy and you'll want to switch back to the previous version. So it might be worth keeping one old version around.

The current version is the one named just "OmniFocus". All the others should be followed by a version number (like The one with the biggest number is the most recent one that you might want to keep around.

Will you ever fix this stupid bug in the updater for non-admin accounts, which is the root cause of this problem? It was reported months and months ago, before OmniFocus ever reached release. Fwiw, it affects all Omni apps using the updater and is incredibly annoying.
