Default Searching for updates

Good morning:

I'm not sure whether this has been suggested before, and how easy or difficult it is to implement, but recently I discovered I didn't have all the most recent updates and upgrades for instruments and patches. It would be nice to have a feature in Play that, when you are on the internet, you can do a quick search for the latest updates of Play and all the instruments you have, just to make sure you're up to date. Right now you can't tell which instrument updates have been installed and which haven't. I have all the downloads in one location, by manually comparing what has been released against what is in that folder I can sort of figure out whether I have everything, but it is time consuming and prone to errors.

There's a number of software programs that have this (Sibelius, Avid Media Composer, Pro Tools, Reaper, Omnisphere).

In terms of file management / maintenance it's one of the little things that make a life a bit easier.
