Hoping it will be released soon.
Please announce it on the forums and/or front page when you do release it, and if anyone out of the lab manages to upgrade successfully please let us know. Those (many) of us familiar with the updated-version-doesn't-run-must-roll-back-to-old-version pattern are refusing the update. As mentioned elsewhere the update prompt is happening frequently today, but that could be because of server restarts for all we know. We've had to ignore the update prompt for many months to keep running our agents at all...
I've upgraded all my Windows 0.4.4 service-mode clients to 0.4.5 without problem.
I have run 0.4.5 on Java 1.4.2, 1.5, and 1.6 in both systray agent mode and service-mode without issues now. I think I always uninstall the old client before installing the new one.
The biggest hurdle is when the registration server(s) are flaky or down - at which point I usually cannot re-register the agent after upgrade
Edit: BTW, the minimum windows version requirements can be safely reduced to Windows NT4 SP6a w/IE4 in case anyone is interested
Edit2: I should probably also mention that I *never* install Dimes in C:\Program Files any more... Ever since the Java 1.6 issue, I make sure there's never a space in the path.
