Will upgrading by hand bork the auto-update feature?

I set my current one-click of Omeka S to receive key updates automatically. Now I find myself needing to update to the develop branch of the software. If I do that, will I disable future auto-updates?

Not at all, what it may do is push out the same update in the future when a new release comes out (if you want to stay on the develop branch I would disable updates) but it won’t prevent you from getting updates in any way.

Excellent! Thank you, Tim. That was exactly what I wanted to hear.
