Reviews for this release

Documentation is very poor. On top of that, the one that's provided here is not even 100% correct. I had to include a system icon into the constructor of Sparkle(). I wish it explained a bit more on how to test it, considering I haven't dealt with something like this before - so it's not newbie friendly in any shape or form.

Documentation on how to use this and what to expect is missing. Also it's not clear what scenario's are supported. What if you have multiple files to update and what if they are in different folders (like a app data folder)?

I was able to set it up and get it running in 2 hours. Nice project. PS: I used Dropbox "Public" folder to host my appcast, release notes and msi

This project saved me at least a week. Very well done and easy to use.
