We might have discussed this after the last upgrade. I’m not sure any decision was made.
Too many people were caught unaware of the Whonix 13 release, which is a failure on so many levels… But if more can be done to keep people informed, I guess it should be done. Plus, we have to pick up the pieces after broken installations happen anyway so might as well reduce the support burden.
Would it be possible for Whonixcheck to spawn a second pop-up for a few weeks before release? (Because any notice attached to the normal pop-up can be easily ignored.)
