Software Update: SUMo 5.16.1

Spread the love

KC Softwares has released version 5.16.1 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 edition only lets you know which programs have a newer version available and provides a link to a general search page on KC Software’s website. The pro version often gives better download links that lead directly to the manufacturer’s download page, but updating remains a manual process, so you always keep 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 portable version available, which can do its job without having to be installed first. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:


  • 0007064: Memory leak (FileGrabber)
  • 0007072: Memory leak (SSLContext)
  • 0007069: Wrong version reported for “Thunderbird (64 bits) by Mozilla Foundation” due to rnp-cli.exe / rnpkeys.exe
  • 0007086: Danish translation update
  • 0007052: “IObit Public Program” to be filtered out (dependency)
  • 0007057: “IObit Tips by IOBit” to be filtered out (dependancy)
  • 0007076: Updated Hebrew translation
  • 0007071: “Karen’s Replicator” incorrectly reported as “Karen’s Power Tools”
  • 0007055: Seatools v5 not detected / loaded into SUMo
