This issue has been occurring for a few weeks, so it likely dates back as a bug introduced a few beta releases ago.
The updater notification would only show when manually triggered via "1Password 7" > "Check for Updates..."
When there is an update available, the release notes would only disappear after being explicitly acknowledged
This new behaviour has been very annoying. It's a continuous distraction, made worse when screensharing.
The disappearing Release Notes is less problematic, as I can view them another way, but why bother showing them if they disappear.
The behaviour is similar to what's been described in
Quitting 1Password and re-launching it doesn't fix the problem.
