QGIS 3 is out but doesn't have the plugins I need yet so I'll use QGIS 2.18 a bit longer. I have QGIS 3.2 installed alongside to test the new features.

However, there is now a footer in QGIS 2.18 telling me there is a new version and I should upgrade.

Is there a way to get rid of the yellow footer?

In "Settings > Options... > General > Application" tab
