I think that as there are quite a few regressions between 3.5 and 3.6 maybe
the update path should be to 3.5.7 and provide the information that 3.6.3
which is considered recommended by TDF is available and provide a link.
Maybe nagging people to switch from 3.5.x to 3.6.3 is too premature?

In any case I believe there should be a "stable channel" and
"beta/development/QA channel" for updates as in Mozilla, as suggested here

This would allow any user to choose the QA channel to be notified of 3.6.4
rc1 or 3.7.0 rc3 regardless if the installed build is a stable or an rc

Just my usual 2 cents :)
