I am a developer and a user and I really like (from both perspectives) the auto update feature of LINQPad. It is painless and effortless and doesn't bug me with annoying "New update available!" popups.
Also, in general, a lot of support questions can be omitted this way because users are automatically up to date with their version.
Are you sure the linked issue is related to the automatic update feature of LINQPad?
