I know when you click on Check for Updates you are supposed to see which applications and plugins are out of date. This works fine for the core IPS applications, but for whatever reason it doesn't seem to work for third party products.
So the only way I know of to check for out of date third party products is to go to my Applications and Plugins pages and compare what I have installed to those in the Marketplace. I print out my Applications and Plugins pages and then go into the Marketplace to compare. Pretty tedious. It's particularity annoying for Plugins since you have to drill down to each individual plugin to get the version number. I then have to write it down on my print out. Oy! What is this 1998?
Is there anyway you can make this simpler? At the very least can you display the Plugins' version number on the main page so you don't have to dig for it? A link to the application/plugin in the Marketplace would also be helpful.
