Good idea but inaffidabile!

Good "idea" but the results of "tests" are absolutely inaffidabile IMHO :)

Does exactly what it needs to do
By , for WP 3.7.1

It does exactly what it needs to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Perfect for checking compatibility. If anyone happens to be confused at all, we have an article on it as well:

Works fine
By , for WP 3.7.1

I wanted to know if our sites support background updates and the plugin gave me the scoop.

Inconsistent with core - confused
By , for WP 3.7

about.php and update-core.php tells me that my site will receive updates automatically. This plugin, however, tells me it won't. I says, on condition 4, "Couldn#8217;t retrieve a list of the checksums for WordPress 3.7. This could mean that connections are failing to WordPress.org."

I have never had problems connecting to wordpress.org. So what to believe?

PHP 5.4, IIS7

Works great!
By Plugin Author, for WP 3.7

The plugin told me exactly why my install couldn't update. Turns out, my developer is managing my site using version control, and he rocks at keeping things updated.
