All manually initiated checks for updates will now see the latest available version.

This applies to the case when a recently released update is going through a gradual roll-out phase and it's not immediately visible to all installations.

Previously, both manual and scheduled (automated) checks for new versions were treated the same, so it wasn't possible for an installation to retrieve a freshly released update until its IP address was included in the newest channel coverage.

With this change, gradual roll-out provisions now apply to automated checks only. Manual checks will now always be served through the newest channel. They will also override Symantec-specific processing if one applies.

For detailed description of gradual roll-outs, update channels, Symantec-specific handling and available configuration options see this post.
