    Is there a decent plugin that notifies when an update has been made? I think I was using WP-Plugin but it never was up to date. Thanks.

    We're waiting for you to write one. :)

    I just use Viper's Plugins used plugin and run down the list every so often.

    Well, there are approaches for this. The problem is that you would need some sort of standardized and/or centralized infrastructure. This requires a lot of cooperation among WP developers and plugin authors.

    Some people (including me) tried to evaluate in how far such a cooperation could be organized, but as soon as the discussion came to the WP developers, there was no proper answer to receive. Automattic has announced to develop a plugin management framework some time ago, but nothing ever happened (afaik). But unless Automattic says "Go", nobody will want to make this work for nothing (i.e. seeing a WP core implementation with the next release).
