Provide a way to check for updates from within the
console. If possible, this must be run in background
during startup. Provide also options such as:
enabled/disabled, frequency (daily, weekly, etc.), and
HTTP proxy.

Ideas: create a file named versions.xml in the docroot
with all versions. This file may include some changelog
details.

Notice that this must be only a notification service.
Even more, once a new version is notified (if enabled)
no further UI event should be generated for this
release (it´s annoying)
