Software update: SUMo 5.12.14

KC Softwares has released version 5.12.14 of SUMo. SUMo, which stands for Software Update Monitor, is a program that scans the computer for available software and then checks whether newer versions are available. By installing a driver agent it can also check for new drivers. The free version only lets you know which programs have newer versions available and provides a link to a general search page on the KC Softwares website. The pro version often provides better download links that lead directly to the manufacturer’s download page, but updating remains a manual process, so you always have full control over your own system.

The pro version also has the option to update SUMo itself to a newer version and can also see whether computers connected to the local network have the latest updates via a clear web page. In addition to the standard installer, there is also one portableversion available, which can do its job without having to be installed first. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:
