While testing the updating process for the latest Ti SDK on Linux, the Small alert in the lower right corner came up to notify me that an update to the SDK was available. This dialog was almost immediately removed. This seemed to happen in conjunction with the Dashboard tab being rendered. As soon as the tab appears, the alert is removed.
Please note, my DNS was pointing at the staging server. The dashboard opened to a blank page, which I expected due to the DNS setting.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Point your DNS to the staging server
2) Launch studio without having the 1.7.1 SDK
The update alert appears, but the alert is removed rather quickly. (Less than 2 seconds)
The alert remains until it's closed or clicked.
We will try this when the SDK is released and expect it may be resolved with the DNS change to support getting the live update.
