PSI checks for vulnerabilities and not updates per se.

Therefore it will only notify program updates if it is a security fix to an existing vulnerability of the same program, installed on your PC.

If the update is issued by the vendor for purely "cosmetic" reasons, then PSI wont inform you to this - there are other programs for that purpose.

It may be that the version PSI lists, is the latest secure version.

You should check the vendor release notes for this later version.

If you believe this not to be the case, then you can use "Program missing? Suggest it here" (see bottom of PSI tabs), to give details of the latest version to Secunia.

After I updated to the current version, it displayed correctly for me also. The problem is I didn't understand that PSI wasn't telling me that I didn't have the current version so that I would know.

Thanks for the clarification, I didn't realize that only vulnerabilties were being reported. It sure would be nice if PSI did report versions that aren't current also. I am of course concerned about updating software that has vulnerabilities and really like that PSI helps with that. I also like knowing that I have the latest version of software so that I know that I've got the latest features and hopefully the most stable versions.
