Hey devs, just wanted to let you know how serious of an issue this is. I was mid-render on a 10hr bake and the software stopped it to update. This could have absolutely screwed me, and at the least wasted time. Thanks.
Did Shapespark show you the restart notification popup? In general it is safe to keep this popup open and the application/baking should continue to work.
We will try to improve this mechanism. Last time we investigated this, the framework that provides the automatic updates did not allow for much customization, but hopefully things have improved since.
