"Newer Version" dialog

From: tsvn1 <tsvn1_at_mailinator.com>

The "newer version available" dialog has recently become obnoxious. I
understand it is beneficial to keep users running the latest version of
Tortoise, but I'm having to update multiple times each week, and the dialog
never really goes away for more than a day or two.

A commonly accepted practice is to only notify users of new versions when a
"major" revision has occurred. The definition of "major" is subjective, of
course, but, for instance, right now the dialog is telling me:

Your version is
Current version is

Is there some critical update that happened between those two that I just
can't live without? Probably not. If it were a difference like 1.6.1 to
1.7.0, then MAYBE the "newer version" dialog would be appropriate.

If such frequent updates really are necessary, then Tortoise should have an
"automatic update" option. It's my hunch that they are not really
necessary, though.
