Hyperlinks in updater release notes do not work, because gtk_show_uri does not work on MacOS.
We should probably fix gtk_show_uri on MacOS to just call LSOpenCFURLRef.
We could work around it by handling the label's activate-link signal.
Shouldn't Process.Start show the URI in the browser ?
Of course, but it's not using Process.Start. The link handling is implemented in GTK+. By default it calls gtk_show_uri, which doesn't work on Mac. It also fires an event, but that's not bound in GTK#.
Michael fixed this in the master branch (a possible candidate to backport to 3.0-series)
In version 188.8.131.52, this bug still persists. Please fix it, it's a trivial bug but it is really annoying. Also a feature request, please add a context menu to each update so that we can do extra thing on a specific update -> ignore, cancel download, retry download, etc
This was fixed in MD but only works with a newer version of the GTK+ toolkit than we ship on Windows. It will work on Windows when we ship the new GTK+.
