From time to time, upgrades and patch versions of Oxygen XML Developer are released to provide enhancements that fix problems and add new features.

By default, Oxygen XML Developer automatically checks for new versions at start up. If a newer version is detected, a dialog box will automatically be displayed that provides information about the type of upgrade or update that is available. If the newer version includes a critical bug fix, this dialog box will continue to be displayed every time Oxygen XML Developer is launched. To disable this check, open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences), go to Global, and deselect Automatic Version Checking.

To check for new versions manually, go to Help > Check for New Versions. This opens a dialog box that displays information about whether or not a newer version is available.
