The Check4Update project was started by Martin Thelian and Manfred Jakesch
as a course-related student project on the technical university of Vienna.
After the first functional release of Check4Update (which was a lot of work),
Manfred has left the project because of his finished computer science study.
Futher versions where then released by Martin in the course of a follow-up
Now the project has reached a point where it works quite well, so that Manfred
and I have decided to host the project on sourceforge. But please not that the
service is still more or less untested and further work must be done to
reach a stable state.
Currently the sources of the project will be over-worked to provide a good
starting point for further extensions and improvements.
