#1319 closed change (fixed)

Move application update checks to a dedicated Updater component

FilterEngine is currently performing application update checks in the background. After #1285 this should be disabled by default - but it still doesn't belong into FilterEngine in the first place.

What to change

We should have a separate Updater class and move the updating logic from FilterEngine to it, as well as any API related to application update checks.

This will be a bit tricky, since application update checks are implemented in the Adblock Plus core code, interacting with it will probably have to move to a component shared by FilterEngine and Updater. See #1285 for some discussion on this.

This is just a refactoring, it's not required disabling updates at all. #1285 will fully take care of that.
