No, it doesn't auto update, and yes it's a stable release, it's part of 2.6, not 2.7.

Just a little update about the font selector in 2.6.9
If you use your mouse wheel to select font type it will work fine.
IF however you just select an up or down arrow in the scroll bar selector window you will crash the program entirely.

I tried to switch a few XML files from the menu folder in 2.6.8 but that didn't work.

I have submitted a bug report to Bugzilla about it already.
Just wanted to let you guys know IF you still want to use 2.6.9 use your mouse wheel to select your font type.
Also this is the Windows 32 bundle, not sure about Mac or any others.

that bug was for every combo box in the program, but seems to have been resolved.
it is awaiting verification, and then will probably be fixed in the dl.

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug.
This particular bug has already been reported into our bug tracking system, but
we are happy to tell you that the problem has already been fixed. It should be
solved in the next software version. You may want to check for a software
upgrade.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 622608 ***

------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
You reported the bug.

so evidently its been resolved, although i downloaded the bundle again and it still crashes.I assume they will just be adding the fix to 2.8 later on.
