Software update: SUMo 5.8

KC Softwares released version 5.8 of SUMo. SUMo, which stands for Software Update Monitor, is a program that scans the computer for existing software and then checks whether newer versions are available. By installing a driver agent it can also check for new drivers. The free implementation only lets you know which programs a newer version is available for, downloading the update and updating is something you have to do manually yourself. This makes it especially useful for people who want to keep control over which updates they want to install or not. The standard installation program includes an optional ad module, but there is also a lite – and a portable version available, where it is not. Since version 5.7.3 the following changes have been made:
