Software Update: SUMo 5.9

Spread the love

KC Softwares has released version 5.6 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 can also check for new drivers. The free version only tells you which programs have a newer version available, downloading the update and updating is something you have to do yourself manually. This makes it especially useful for people who want to keep control over which updates they do or do not want to install. The default installer includes an optional advertising module, but there are also a lite– and a portableversion available, in which it is not included. The following changes have been made in this release:
