Cannot Return to Stable Releases....
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have posted this on two different support forums, including the one for this plugin, but nobody has a response, and the author clearly isn't showing the courtesy of dealing with user problems.

So I ran the latest version of this plugin for the 4.2 beta. After release, as I did in previous beta cycles, I deactivated it and attempted to upgrade to the release version. No dice. Even manually installing the 4.2.x files leaves me in 4.3 alpha mode.

Any solutions? Anyone?

Good but unresolved issues

The plugin was very helpful but deactivating it did not stop installing pre-release updates. This issue seems to be quite long time known and a response from the author on the support forum could be helpful.

Does not do what it says

This plugin is useless. I am trying to install 4.2 beta and this piece o stuff just reinstalls 4.1.1 and announces what a good job it did. What a crock.

Very handy plugin

What the..
By , for WP 4.0.1

Why the @#$@$ does the wordpress blog recommend this tool for trying out the RC for 4.1??
It gives me two choices.. point releases (which re-installed 4.0.1) or bleeding edge which gave me 4.2alpha.
Besides the tool hasn't been updated since 3.8.3 which doesn't really give the feeling that it's on top of things..

WHAT it does it does wel, that is, install versions other than the latest stable, but the usefulness for checking my plugins under the latest RC is lacking..
