(Interesting that the Open Document Foundation and LibreOffice are not listed in the drop-down boxes in the heading.)

Have just done a scan and no programs were listed as needing updating. However, immediately after this scan I found that an update to a new version 4.0.1.2 (EB-GB) was available and duly installed it. I have also at times found that some updates to Firefox for Windows are similarly ignored. Is this a bias against FOSS programs or is there some delay in communication with the suppliers?

PSI only notifies of updates that fix security vulnerabilities. The release notes do not mention any security fixes.

Thanks DD, I hadn't considered this; and as you say, there is no mention of security updates in the LibreOffice release notes.

Complaint withdrawn (and it was only intended to draw attention to a possible minor improvement to PSI)
