Request for Enhancement:

One thing I've noticed with many popular apps on OS X is that the app will automatically (unless explicitly disabled) check for updates (eg, weekly), and will typically provide a menu item to check for updates manually. This does not appear to be present in BS v2.0.58.

The check for updates is under the HELP menu.

Not the normal Mac placement under the apps menu but there are other apps that have it under Help also.

I don't think there is a auto check for update though.

Hi,
  The program does occasionally check for updates automatically (every few days if you use it regularly).  As noted you can manually check using the Help menu command.

  I'm also working on an option to download updates in the background which should make it easier to remain updated.
