Add notify when an update of package is available

  • Hi all :-) I use pfsense since 1month.

    Is it possible add a notify when an update of package is available? It happen that when I saw "installed packages" there're many updates available.

    Not currently. The update check is only performed when your browser loads the page. To do so on a regular basis for notifications would place a much, much higher load on our servers for very minimal benefits. Unless a package has a security problem, is misbehaving, or you need a new feature, most of the time you don't need to upgrade it immediately.
