Hi,
It is very hard to know if we are using the latest version of NsPro by looking at your site. Would it be possible to include the version number as part of the package name? For example pkg_nspro J3.5 2.0.12.zip

Hello David.
Thank you for posting.
This is a very good point.

I have finally included full version numbers in the packages, last week. Not in the file names, but you can find out which version you are using by going to Extensions > Manage > Manage in your Joomla administrator.

We are in contact with the developer of the extension I use for selling extensions to implement a direct download URL, which will also check for user details. This will enable all users (including commercial extensions) to update using the Joomla update method, instead of manually downloading the latest version from the website. Such a feature would also notify you of a new version in your administrator, and thus simplify the update process.

Thanks again.
