SSSOOOOOO sick of VLC's update check not actually seeing updates.

As far as I can tell they do this on purpose to prevent auto-updates from rolling over before a new version shakes out. But the UI message is reallllllllly misleading, implying that no newer version exists instead of indicating that they just haven't decided to auto-update you to the new version yet.

If I *explicitly ask* for an update check, it should give me the current version offered for download. Sigh.


@brion Yeah, that's terrible UI. I've been frustrated with that on other updaters like Android OSes and so on...
