If I go to appium.io I find a download link at github.com/appium/appium-desktop for stable 1.13.0 at https://github.com/appium/appium-desktop/releases/

There also exists a github.com/appium/appium repository at https://github.com/appium/appium/releases with current stable 1.14.1

On my Mac, I am running Version 1.14.0 ( according to the Appium→About Appium menu, the main window shows the button Start Server v1.14.0, and starting a server shows Welcome to Appium v1.14.0 in the log, but selecting Check For Updates in the menu tells me that Appium Desktop v1.13.0 is available from May 5, which includes an update to Appium version 1.13.0.

How do I resolve these differing version numbers and the apparent downgrade?

  • Did you try posting this as a GitHub issue on one of the appium repositories? This seems like a question that only the maintainers will really be able to answer.

Suggestion :

  • If you are able to work as expected with installed Appium stable version then just ignore this version update/upgrade messages

  • Another option would be to uncheck/de-select check for updates for Appium desktop application
