It seems like the mirror for the auto updater is going extremely slow so if you don't want to wait, then try downloading the whole program from the mirrors listed.

Edit: The auto updater seems to be working OK now, I just had to let it sit for a while. I'll be seeding the update so hopefully that will help out with anyone else that goes to update :).

He's watching you.
