Updates generally take less than 24 hours to get approved. Not a long time to wait.
if it’s a critical bug and your item is new, 24h are more than enough to get a bunch of harsh comments / bad ratings and kiss goodbye your sales.

You have a point. It’s something Envato should consider.

Just throwing this out there:

What if we could submit “beta” releases that would not need to pass the review process, which would become immediately available. The customer would then have the option to download the latest stable or latest beta version. This would be a good way to get updates out quickly while still maintaining the integrity of the review process. It would also allow us to provide bleeding-edge distributions to customers who want to try out new features, without having the entire customer base upgrade.

I think it’d make sense to give customers access to archived older versions as well, and that system would probably need to be in place for this to work.

Just something to consider.

Good idea but probably harder to implement.

But envato should consider giving this idea a try, and to try and see if it’d work, they could just reverse the current system, auto-approve updates and have reviewers double checking, this way not any more work for anyone, and if it turns out the system is abused it’s easy to roll it back also.

that would be a nice feature to have but will also require more work on the backend (also consider API).

Immediate approval does not since the feature is already implemented. I understand envato wants to check what is getting uploaded/distributed to/from their servers but updates management it’s too important for authors and should be left in their hands.

We trust them to hold our money and after x/y/z time/items/sales we deserve to be trusted as well at the minimum.

I know I have reported some items with infection to the Envato team. Uploading a file without a review for everyone would probably cause security problems. But there should be something for trusted authors. I don’t know how but maybe according to their sales, according to their registration date or according how elit they are or some other way.

Imagine that someone with bad attitude uploaded a file like that. And imagine it got online right after uploading and till Envato checsk it or someone reports it, some 10 – 20 people downloaded it. We all know a quicker way for important upadets are required, but you can’t let everyone to do that for security reasons.

@bitfade I think the issue is with that Notification to buyers. Because the system will send mails to buyers. This can let one to update & notify buyers everytime has a new file, by updating all his files so all his buyers will know about his new file. Spam. It’s a tricky thing. But, like I posted before, can be filtered by manual approves when Notification is required.
