continuous Update information + can't save plugin settings
I have Ardour 3.5.143 (got it from the ardour website https://community.ardour.org/s/buy) on Linux Mint 16 XFCE. Besides the fact that Ardour is a great software, there are 2 things atm with my ardour, that don't seem to be right:
1.) When I start Ardour it keeps on informing me: "Version 3.5.74 has been released. Update at: ..." though I thought that my current version is the most recent one. Am I wrong?
2.) I can't seem to save any plugin-settings. I didn't have problems with previous Ardour versions here (3.0.X). Now pressing the "Hinzufügen" (equivalent to "add" I suppose) in the Plugin has no effect at all. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any insights,
