It would be nice to see the inclusion of the Sparkle framework (http://sparkle.andymatuschak.org/) for self-updating within the next update. Therefore future updates will be announced automatically by GrandPerspective.

I'd also like it if the app sent out a Growl notification (http://growl.info/) when it finished reading a folder or volume. Larger folders or volumes take long enough to read that us users go off and do other tasks while it's reading the drive and may not see that it has completed reading right away. A Growl notification would assist in that.

    I'm not yet convinced that the benefits of Sparkle justify the effort, the increase in size of the app, and the extra dependencies on third-party sofware. However, your vote has been noted. See my comments on Feature Request under Feature Request 1869722 for some more background, which is also where any further discussion should take place.

    Letting GrandPerspective support Growl notifications sounds useful though. I haven't been using Growl myself yet, but I will give it a go, and will see what integration would involve.

    Cheers,
    Erwin
