This command can be used to check if the version of Boxer being used is still up-to-date.  This command will launch your Internet browser to display a special page at the Boxer Software website.  If a new version of Boxer is available, details will be given on how to get the update.  Minor updates to Boxer will be made available free-of-charge.  See the topic Upgrade Information for more information.


bm2In order to launch your Internet browser, Boxer relies upon the operating system shell's ability to open an Internet address.  When an Internet browser is installed, it typically establishes itself as the program which is called by the shell to open such addresses.  This is true of all common browsers you are likely to encounter.  If you find that your Internet browser is not launched by Boxer, or if some other inactive browser is launched instead, it's because your active browser has not established itself as the one that processes the 'open' request from the operating system shell for Internet addresses.  This situation should be rare, cannot be remedied by Boxer, and is not due to any shortcomings in Boxer.
