I tested with a clean install from the executable gl version. It's the same problem there, if install r23973 XBMC reports r23944, and if install r23944 XBMC reports r23912 and so on.

XBMCUpdate has to effect on the version number that is reported inside of XBMC. the only version that it has control over is the version that is displayed in XBMCUpdate itself and it comes from update.xml and that version is extracted from the zip file that is downloaded from the server.
so if for any reason the version reported by XBMC isn't the same as you see in XBMCUpdate it could either be that version of the xbmc that was last downloaded didn't match it's file name or for some reason xbmcupdate is unable to update update.xml and that's why its showing an outdated version.

@kay.one: Exactly my point. In that last test I didn't even use the updater, just compared the filename with what XBMC reported in the gui, so it can't be the updater.
EDIT: As this is not a problem with the updater I'll post this in 'Third-party SVN builds' thread instead.

Is it possible to use auto update for the new alpha just released?
If not, how do I go about installing the alpha and not lose my database or settings?

Just download the .exe installer from the official page and run it. You shouldn't lose anything. Although, it is always a good idea to backup your userdata folder before you install an alpha/beta/svn release.

Thx for the info..BTW after alpha I take it the dx subdirectory will stop now that it is included in the main strain?

That would be correct.
