I was already tired of update alerts. This plugin is just for me.
Provides full control of automatic updates, down to individual plugins and types of core updates. Sends an email when a core update is applied which is great as a reminder to check through the site and make sure all is ok. Highly recommended!
This is exactly what I was looking for!
