iReport is always searching for new Versions. In the "Plugins"-Menu: The "Updates"-Tab is disabled, the Settings on the "Settings"-Tab have no effect on this behavior. I set "Automatisch nach Updates suchen" (i guess it is something like "Check for updates automatically") to "Nie" (Never) but iReport still checks for Updates.
The Update notification window produced a weird mysql error on Output. See my attachment!
by the way.. iReport is a great piece of software!
Now the update message has another defect.. have a look at update-error2.jpg
I am using IReport 3.7.2
