Would I be right in thinking that the Sparkle 1.13.1 is the version that fixes Sparkle’s recent security problem? So it’s sensible to update to version MBS Updater Kit 2.0 from a security point of view?

Well, the new Sparkle Update is only for 64-bit.
32-bit stays at older version.

So for 32bit apps the updater is insecure???

The framework is only updated for 64-bit.
The bug with security was for older version when you did not use HTTPS.
