I've released version 2.2 of Stringscan, my text search tool for macOS and Windows. This release includes further refinements to the installation and upgrade process.
I haven't been 100% happy with the current setup of the upgrade mechanism, which is a hand-rolled Tcl library that provides functionality roughly equivalent to the Sparkle project on macOS and its complementary project on Windows, Winsparkle. I briefly considered actually adding these libraries to my app, but they don't play very well with my programming setup, so I opted to do some further tweaking to my own update mechanism. I'm pleased with the update.
