If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Difficult Installation on Windows 10

I downloaded the current version, and, when I tried installing it, I got a blue rectangle from a Windows service (WIndows smartscreen, probably) telling me that the program was dangerous and would not be installed. There is a white button with "do not install" written on it, and, at first, no "install anyway" button (you have to click a not very visible "more info" line to get the "install anyway" button).

While it's clearly a false positive, I don't remember this having happened in any previous release.

More generally, I think it would be nice if the official releases had a signature on them, although I am not a developer, just a user, and don't know how this stuff is done or whether there are costs involved, or if it would collide with the licenses.

EDIT: same story today with the 27.1 update.
