Post news RSS Auto Updater independent of MDU

Finnaly i've found a way to host my own server and got rid of MDU, take a look a list of upgrades.

Remember that Fetch Update button? It's still here, but it seems i was always dependent of MDU, a service that i don't host and don't own, they can actually control the whole game.
Few day's ago, thanks to Simon Donkers i've quite reworked the update fetcher (auto-updater) and i'm really happy with the results, finally we've got full control of our game servers.
So what does that improve? Faster updates, which is the main reason, i usually have to recover passwords because i forget them on the MDU site! ^^
Well.. It's a great service, but now we've got something new, big.
So how does it work?
Game opens url and gets a string from a website of the current version, also informs if there's a new update available (I've been dreaming about this feature), soon then with your agreement it goes to the second url hosting the file of new version.
And that's it, you've got a fresh new game!
