How can we improve SQL Prompt?

Retrieve BETA Updates when checking for updates

I usually run the latest version of the beta and it would be nice if "Check for Updates" would pick up the latest version version of SQL Prompt, including any beta versions.
Perhaps this could be an option for those that aren't interested in participating in betas.

    The way it should work at the moment is if you have a beta build installed then you’ll get stable and beta builds on check for updates, which look something like:

    If you have a stable build Prompt installed however you’ll only get new stable builds listed. So by installing a beta you’ll be opting into new beta builds, does this sound ok?

    (…and I just noticed we hadn’t added the latest few updates to CFU, I’ll make sure all the new ones are on there!)

        It should depend solely on the currently installed build. So if you installed a beta, a stable and then a beta you'll get notified of new beta builds since the last one installed was a beta.
        Installing a stable after that would mean you'll only get notified of stable releases.

        Perhaps this scenario isn't a concern, and if not, you can ignore. If I install a beta and then a stable version comes out, which I install, then a new beta, would I see the option to install the latest beta?
        If not, then maybe we always need to be able to see Beta updates regardless of which version we are on. Maybe the user could choose whether or not they were alerted.
