Some sort of update status for the user.

Idea from Drupal - "update status"
http://drupal.org/documentation/modules/update

Small script with info to user about new version.

Get info from RSS feed of ledger-smb-announce malinglist / http://ledgersmb.org/news
/ latest file on http://sourceforge.net/

Include a usage reporting feature. We only have download stats.

It would be nice to have some more stats about our user base
- anonymous reporting
- how many installations we have on each version
- how many users on each installation
-

Drupal have some ideas
