Renew - Automatic Software Update

Myndlink Software wants to update your third party software on Mac OS X. Just like Apple's Software Update preference pane, Renew does the same for other software.

We're looking for more information and reader feedback, as this sounds very interesting. Version number right now seems to be 0.4.

Update: Having installed the current public version, I have to say: It works as advertised. There are several conflicts with Renew not knowing which application is which (but it asks you quite nicely) and one obvious bug, which is that if you keep multiple versions of applications, it asks you to update the older ones. If you have something to add, drop me a line, please.
