Finds sometimes and that's already too often, updates which do not exist : neither on the software's homepage, neither anywhere on the searchable surface web. Where do they get the information of those updates availability is beyond my imagination.

Most computer users will eventually need a program to manage updates and the Lite version of SUMo is a simple and effective way to check the status of all the applications you have installed.

still reports updates for lot's of programs, even if there is no final update, just some 'beta' or 'not official updates'.
Check for Betafiles has been disabled in the config.

As below there is now not just the portable version with no spyware but the lite version with installer both available on the download page - Great program.
