Is it me? Have I missed something or does PSI v3.0 not indicate/recommend update when obsolescence is detected? Or is it no longer detected or considered a security risk?

Example is Java. Currently have JRE6 installed and v3.0 only highlighted a new version of JRE6 rather than indicating that JRE7 is now out, as would have done PSI v2.0.

Is this feature planned to be added to v3.0? Hope so as a very key reason for using PSI...in my humble opinion.

JRE 6 is not obsolete. It is still supported by Oracle.

OK, point taken but there is a new version or major release and PSI v3.0 is not advising on this, etc. as v2.0 did.

So either way it would be good if v3.0 did that.
