i'm not sure how often cvs builds are put out but i don't compile them myself so is it possible for xbmc to check if a new cvs or final version of xbmc is out on startup. for me i have xbmc on 24/7 so it might be better if xbmc could check every x hours or every x days...maybe xbmc could write to a file the last time it checked and then go on from there. i don't know if a new cvs build should be checked for or a new final version, i guess that's up to you guys.

i searched the forums and find it hard that no one suggested this but i might have overlooked it so hopefully people like this suggestion.

the cvs gets updated nearly everyday.

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs....=markup

there have been very few real 'milestones' like xbmc 1.0 and xbmc 1.1.0.

many of the releases you see out there are just cvs builds done once every 3 or so days. you would be better served i think just by regularly updating like once every 2 weeks or so.
