No

I had downloaded the APK a few nights ago (say 15/Feb) and installed the app
Today (19/Feb) I:
Deleted original APK
Android Settings > Apps > CODESYS Forge > clear data + clear cache + uninstall
Downloaded new APK from link in the News Post
Installed
Android Settings > Apps > CODESYS Forge > Says "Version 20200208"
==> IS: can't find Product News
==> SHOULD: can find Product News

    That's right.
    The reason is, that all special categories in the App are able to trigger push notifications. And the idea was, that the product news would also be of interest for the typical forge user. Despite this, there is no reason why we should duplicate this information on the forge website.

    Sorry! Seems, like I forgot to upload the last build.

    Tester Note:
    Hmm, when I used the link on the news feed ( here ), somehow I still get V20200208
    If I go to https://forge.codesys.com/tol/cforge/code/ and click through to the cforge.apk I get an error 500
    However when I hit the Download Snapshot button, I get a zip file with the correct cforge.apk in it

    I think as it will be in beta on Play Store soon, the simple fix for now is to say "download snapshot of the repository and unzip to get the APK"

    RESULT: OK - I now have product news in the app

    Question

    Why won't place a "Product News" link in the Hamburger menu button?

    Saves you a custom built place in the app ... plus the hamburger button is by design available on ALL platforms (browser, mobile and android app).
