Something is wrong here. MacUpdate is showing 1.7.6 as the latest version but the Arduino/Genuino website (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software) still shows 1.6.5 as being the latest. It looks like MacUpdate has gotten the version number from Arduino srl (the company that used to make the boards for Arduino.cc). They claimed the Arduino trademark in Italy and forked the software to form Arduino.org and compete with Arduino.cc. Go to the Arduino.cc site to find the latest version.
