Everyone...

Release #68 is published. It ...

1. Fixes a memory management bug Paul F reported. (This is why I pushed it out immediately.)
2. Updates some wording in the help text.
3. Disables the trick of pasting into the Rescue Code field with Right-clicking. (We need to dissuade ever placing the RC onto the clipboard.)

It appears that our auto-update system is stable once again. (Has anyone tried to download with Edge and SmartScreen recently?) And, while I still intend to make time to look at the app's textual content one final time, I am once again hopeful that we are very nearly finished. :)

Thanks, everyone!

And I was able to download a copy of the new SQRL client with MS Edge. No complaint from Windows Defender now.

As per previous update, #67 to #68 update went fine.

Was a bit surprised to see SQRL pop up so soon with another update, but its a pleasant one anyway :)

Win 10 x 64 download was automatic with the client updating itself = No issues
Download with Chromium = No issues
Scanned with Windows Defender, and Malwarebytes = No issues
Download with Edge (Smartscreen on) = No issues
Download with Internet Explorer <shudders> (Smartscreen on) = No issues

Just like #66 to #67, #67 to #68 by automatic update, worked great for me.
However slight complaint about the update process:

I was playing a game, and SQRL's update popup took my input focus out of my game. Thankfully it was a slow paced game, so it wasn't a big deal, however it would be nice if SQRL's update notification was not so in your face, although I imagine after final release, the update frequency will be relatively low.

I'm getting the same thing on my Debian box.

SOLVED: I disabled Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) again - and this time it worked. I think maybe when I said I had disabled it that it was not really disabled.
---

Update #68 appears to work, but does not. still stuck at #67.
I think it has something to do with Symantec Endpoint Protection, but I can't make an exception this time (I was able to create an exception for #66)

UPDATEs:
Even disabling Symantec Endpoint Protection does NOT solve the issue
Downloading and installing sqrl.exe still leaves me with version #67 installed.

I will try again after I am able to reboot my computer (in a few hours i think)

UPDATE (again):
I don't think it is being blocked by SEP - I manually entered an exception to sqrl-fork.exe and sqrl-installer.exe.
Also, the above two files are clearly available on the system (not quarantined), and disappear after SQRL "apparently updates". And these files do not show up in the quarantine list, as it had when I was trying to update to version 66.
Everything seems to work, but after "updating" nothing is updated, and I get the message again that a new version is available.

#68 - I can no longer paste the RC into the dialogue box :).

However...

I can still get RoboForm to type the RC into the box. Is this another wrinkle you want to try and eradicate. (perhaps for any password manager)

@i2n2 and @shanedk :

This is PRECISELY the error that Ramriot (Gary) encountered with WINE and release #67.
https://sqrl.grc.com/threads/were-at-release-67-grcs-sqrl-client-2nd-release-candidate.590/post-4341

Solution involved removing the existing install & c: drive upgrading to Wine V4 & reinstalling SQRL, which I did with the #66 copy. It then ran the updater which succeeded this time & opened a webpage in the forum.

Yeah. THAT one is a bridge too far. I'm not going to attempt to block keystroke automation macro systems. If a user wishes to go to that length, I think we should let them! :) Thanks for your testing and feedback.

On my old Dell tower (about which I don't much care), I got an update failure, Code 8. Before I knew that was Authenticode error I tried disabling "Controlled Folder" protection, then also live protection, without success. (Turned those back on, of course.)

2019-05-01: I revisited the Dell. Downloaded and installed current SQRL version. "Controlled folder access" prevented installation until turned off (fine--that's its job). Removed years old version that was in Documents and forgotten about.


On my little weak Acer laptop, the update ran fine, then (twice) clicking the SQRL QR code to log into the forum produced Web protocol error. (That was using Edge)

Using Firefox, I was already logged in, seemingly because I failed to log out previously in Firefox.

@i2n2 and @shanedk : Thanks for getting back to me on this. The big change I made that this must be about is the external compression of the user interface text. If that's it, the trouble is that the client is decompressing the text on-the-fly using a function from the NTDLL.DLL that might not be supported by WINE. If that's the trouble it's annoying since that means I cannot do that at all if I want WINE support, which I clearly do.

The only remaining puzzle, then, is how is Gary (@ramriot) apparently succeeding under his instance of WINE?

Gary: Are you CERTAIN that you're running #68 successfully under WINE?
