Automatic updater?

Has this ever been something anyone has considered implementing in blender? I get tired of checking the site for updates, I’d rather have it prompt me to update when launching blender. I’d love to have a dialog that pops up showing update logs and providing a way to automatically update without having to download/reinstall blender. At the very least I’d like a dialog just alerting me of an update and linking to the site.

If this is a feature people may be interested in having just drop a comment below. Maybe I’ll come up with a solution and implement myself…

I’d love to have that feature. Auto updater is so common in programs today I’m surprised its hasn’t been implemented yet.
