Package Update Notification
Just a suggestion:
When one of the Installed "packages" has an update, it would be good to have two additional processes:
1) send out an email notification
2) Hightlight the word "Packages" in the GUI so that we can see that there are New Updates Available.
I don't see this available, maybe there is something already coded, but I don't see any options for that. If so, please let me know.
There isn't an automatic background check for that – If there are upgrades they are only shown when the package list is viewed.
However if you add the "Installed packages" widget to the dashboard it will check and blink at you when an upgrade is available when the dashboard is loaded.
