My system shows version 2020.0.2, Build 21519. However, I read here that 2020.0.4 is already out, but checking for updates does not show anything new.

TS can deliver updates quickly and if you think 2020.0.4 will help solve a specific problem you're having, they'll send you a link. They don't want to make minor updates available to all until it's fully tested. 

I have 2020.0.1 and it tells me I'm I'm up-to-date.

Check for updates is not returning the most recent of Camtasia at this time, intentionally (the updater logic is ancient and notifies all versions of Camtasia of an update). Our support and customer service staff have been completely underwater since the Covid crisis pushed so many companies into remote work.

If you are running 2020 we highly recommend that you check the website directly and download the latest version of Camtasia.
As of June 13, 2020 the most recent versions are:

Windows: 20.0.3
Mac: 20.0.4

Windows actually got a new feature in 20.0.3 - The ability to quickly reorder tracks. So if you aren't on it, I'd encourage you to go get it.

I believe we'll likely be shipping another maintenance on Windows in the near future (perhaps as soon as next week).

Until our support staff is out of the woods (can respond to tickets in a reasonable time) or we come up with a mechanism to just notify 2020 users you will want to check the site manually for the latest version.

Brooks, thank YOU! Updated to 2020.0.3 — and I did not even have to enter the Activation Code!

TechSmith has been amazing through this entire crisis. As has been reported by other users during this crisis, I also lost Camtasia 2020 as the result of a Windows 10 crash. Once I got Win10 back up and running, the TechSmith Support Specialists stuck it out with me until resolved, in a thread with over 50 posts back and forth via email. Thank YOU, TechSmith!
