Updater - Part IV

The updater now does a file compression. This means that NaroCAD downloads the compressed files, makes an uncompressing and continues with its job. By downloading compressed files, the download is 3-4 times smaller. One other advantage is that NaroCAD can detect if the file was downloaded correctly by trying to uncompress. If it works, the download was successful. If not, the uncompressing will fail. This way, it’s much easier to determine if a file was downloaded correctly or not. While this change is definitely good for the user, it also benefits us, because it doesn’t take so much time to upload NaroCAD and makes testing the updater a bit faster.
