Update installation blurb

Update installation blurb disappeared before I read it. I installed the new windows version, but don’t know what steps I should take to ensure the safety features and anything else I should learn about the new version. Does anyone know where to find them?

Thanks for the alert to check for an update. I just did, and here is the info copied from the release notes (I have to say that the release date of 10 October is puzzling to say the least!):
Release Notes for Scrivener 1.9.9
(Released 10 October 2018)
Update size: 86.6 MB

Refinements and Changes with the focus on making Scrivener more resilient and robust

  • We have introduced the safer Windows Scrivener 3.0 save mechanism as an option for saving Scrivener project files in version 1.9.9 (not enabled by default). You can switch this on/off via the menu Tools -> Options… then check the checkbox titled: Use safe document saving mechanism. Checking this option protects against losing data during a system crash such as a power failure, unexpected Windows shutdown etc. You can switch back and forth between this new save mechanism and the old. For more detailed information about the differences between these two save options go ahead and change the setting and read the dialog that displays
  • Implemented an automatic recovery mechanism for corrupted project (.scrivx) files. Previously, if a project file became corrupted due to a power loss, Windows or Scrivener crash, etc., then Scrivener would not start
  • Implemented protection against saving of projects within the Scrivener installation folder. This is to prevent any potential loss of data during future upgrades or uninstallations of Scrivener

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed a bug in Scratch Pad when creating a new note using the ‘+’ icon which caused an error message to display
