I purchased SmartGit and love it, but the constant messaging and update requests are a bit annoying.
It would be great if there could be a less intrusive way of updating the software, such as background updates. I do not want to be reminded to download new versions or to restart the software. The downloads should happen automatically and maybe there can be an icon or some subtle notification that an update is pending a restart. Google Chrome does this nicely.
Also, the general notifications in the lower right corner are distracting. They pop up pretty much every time I load SmartGit for various reasons... new beta versions, new updates, etc. I don't want to turn them off altogether, but would be better if they were in a place that did not require my immediate attention.
