Building and testing installers for the three different platforms usually keeps me busy for an entire weekend, while providing a new online-update is a matter of minutes. From user perspective an online update is basically clicking 'OK' once, while removing an older installation, and doing a fresh install is much more effort and also poses the danger to remove own macros, plugins or other files. For these reasons, I only publish a new set of installers once there is a real need.

From a security point of view, manual installers require admin rights and, and in my opinion pose a higher risk than an automatic update. Automatic updates install a new datawarrior jar file only, of which the entire source code is published. The mechanism DataWarrior used for doing the automatic update is also open-source. Thus, this is fully transparent and, at least in my opinion, should not be a security issue.
