Sure thing -- do you have something I could help out with now or do you mean you'll get back to me in a few weeks?

I'm working to improve this tool on some aspects (v2.5.9.2):
- fixed some bugs
- added a context menu for items (any advice to improve it is welcome)
- added the ability to stop Checking and Updating procedures without cause problems (so users without broadband connections can interrupt update procedure and continue it later)
- added the software description, available from the new context menu (support also PortableApps software)
- added a link to the software web page, available from the new context menu (support also PortableApps software)
- improved the error system

If you want to try it, you can download the new manager executable from HERE (place it in "[SuiteDir]\Launcher\Manager" folder). Tests are very useful to help me in the development.

the Suite Manager is great, i'm using it to update Lupo apps! Very Happy

i notice that the update move the old folder and replace it with the new extracted folder, i like to request the old folder make a backup copy first, then the new folder to overwrite the old folder so that it would retain the settings of the old.

It is already possible. From the Manage Apps options you can select the Update Mode:
- "Keep old" is the mode that create a backup copy of the old program in LupoTemp temporary folder (you can access to this folder clicking on the Open button on the right).
- "On-the-fly" instead is the mode that do not keep a backup copy of it and remove the old program after the update.

Note: in the next Suite release will be included an updated manager, with a new Download link (to allow users to download software separately, for external purposes) and some improvements in the tool core.

How about the apps from winpenpac?
they only tell witch apps need a update and send you to the site if you realy want the update.
however i managed to downloa lots of the automaticaly, so this might be of help for you.
i prefere winpenpac above portableapps.com. eccept when multilanguage comes into play.
i coded it in autohotkey.
It works as follows:
For winpenpac:
1 download: http---www-winpenpack.com/update/update.xml.zip
2 extract it, and parse the xml
3 download app: http---netcologne.dl.sourceforge.net/project/winpenpack/%Name%/releases/%Name%_%version%_%Revision%.zip
3 example: http---netcologne.dl.sourceforge.net/project/winpenpack/X-MediaPlayerClassic_HomeCinema/releases/X-MediaPlayerClassic_HomeCinema_1.6.4.6052_rev9.zip
Hope to be of service
--- no external links for me rabbit
