How do I download the update?
I got a Symantec Endpoint Protection warning. Is this safe?
Well, the source code is open to you inspect it (and build if you need).
Can you show screenshot with the warning?
I can test binaries with virustotal, but unfortunately they do not have Symantec checker.
I had to redownload the file since it deleted the file. Now the warning is no longer there, but now I have this message.
PS: I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m scared I may mess something up and Synfig won’t work anymore.
There is nothing to worry about here. Installer warns you that it wants to uninstall a previously installed version before installing a new version. In any case, you can always download the old version and install it back.
Please note that there is not the proper usage of a forum…
There are sections dedicated for support, this one is for Artwork
Okay. So, if I click yes, I should be good to go?
Yup, but it will uninstall the 1.4.0 (nothing to worry about)
You could also use a portable version, or even several portable versions on the same machine
I have several versions as appimages on Linux, which is the equivalent of a portable install under Windows
P.S.: Next time you do a screenshot, just crop the dialog instead of hide several parts of the screen
