Sometimes it is helpful to know which version of Q you have installed. For example, if you contact technical support, they will want to know if you have the most up to date version, or an older one.

Checking for New Versions of Q
If your network/internet setup blocks this, you can manually check whether a new version of Q has been released by clicking on the Help menu and selecting Check for New Version of Q. An internet browser window will open with the results of the check. You will either be notified that you are already running the latest version of Q, or that there is a new version available.
If a new version is available, the key changes that have occurred since the last version will be listed and you will be given the option to download the new version. You should always download the most recent version as it will contain bug fixes and other improvements.
If you are a customer and wish to obtain a beta version of Q please contact support. Beta versions have newer features but also have more bugs.
