Softaculous not recognizing manual WordPress upgrade

Hi, I updated from WordPress 3.4.2 to 3.5 about a week ago. I didn't use Softaculous, I did it through the WordPress dashboard. Now Softaculous is giving me a message saying that I can upgrade from WordPress 3.4.2 to 3.5. Apparently it doesn't know that I already did it, just not through Softaculous. Is there a way I can tell Softaculous that I've already updated, or is this just a bug in the software?

Hello Jdgrimes,

We researched the issue, and made a change so that 3.5 version is recognized by Softaculous. You shouldn't receive any further notices. Let us know if you do! Here's what we changed (if you're curious and for others who may want to do this on their own):

We went into the INSTALLATIONS.PHP file (inside the .softaculous folder) and edited the file. There is a setting for the VERSION of Wordpress labeled as "ver". I simply changed the version from 3.42 to 3.5. We checked this in the Softaculous interface in Cpanel and also through the server to make sure Softaculous "recognized" the version, and it is definitely listing it as 3.5.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
