Your subject line says "& Engine Update"

Yet your info gives the Engine Version number as:
Engine Version: 1.1.2701.0

But you last post from June 22nd gives that "& Engine Update" as:
NEW Engine Version: 1.1.2701.0

This is confusing.

As all the "Daily" manual updates include the Full Engine did you really
mean to call this an "& Engine Update". Is in fact a newer Engine than the
22nd and merely a typo (1.1.2701.0 should be a higher number), In which case
those of us who don't manually update are now 2 version number behind, or is
it in fact the same Engine as the 22nd (which has not yet been "pushed" by
MS) but with newer Defs and your calling it "& Engine Update" for those
people who do not did not manually download between the 22nd and today?

Or is there in fact another possible reason/logic which I'm missing?

I am confused,
not that there's anything unusual about that :)

Hi Tim,
It is an engine update if user will get the defs manually. Not everyone
here has the same version of engne because not all is getting the updates
manually. I figured it's best to add it in the title so those who decides to
get the update will be able to check/confirm that they has the same and newer
engine update that is not pushed yet.

If a user has the said engine version already, they need not to do anything
nor be confused since it's already installed. What is confusing IMHO is if
the version # is different after they've manually download and install the
update :)

It is also why I did not put the word "NEW" for the engine version and I did
not write it on top of the message where I usually post now the newer version

Hope this helps Tim.
