Hello, I have just checked, that post update screen after update to B2 is displayed in my case. If you are sure, you did not see it, please provide us with the log file (support package).
Thank you.

Hi Karel, sent via DM on Slack.

Confirmed by dev - every user should now see only one post update screen when updating to new minor version (21.2 = major.minor). So when you saw PUS after update to B1 (confirmed by ASYN) you will not see it again after B2 update (minor version of product remains same). Due to a bug some users could see it repeatedly in the past. But this is now fixed and you should see it only once per update to new minor version.

There was an issue on our backend which was fixed right after the B1 release - it caused that some users did not see PUS after B1 update (users who updated before this fix), but some of them received update after the fix and saw the PUS correctly even with B1 build.

Well I'm not on the beta and I got one, sat there waiting behind the scenes (not requiring a restart) until I closed other windows.

I think that this was a general Covid-19 Scam warning and not a notification of new features in a new update.
