You published a version 12 in the etoys repo, dated June 2.

On June 15, you took version 11 and started developing again, from that branch you published the current version.

So the current version does not have the original version 12 as a direct ancestor - that's where the problems come from. No automatic loading or merging is possible if a later version is not a child/grandchild of the previous version.

So this is breaking the automatic updating. You should always develop on a single version - branching takes extra effort.
