Andreas M. has posted a nifty little tutorial for creating a version update check in your Add-In.

I want to show you the simplest form of an update check in less than 20 lines of C# code. Before we can have a look at the code we have to ask ourselves which steps are required to perform:

  1. Determine the version of our addin that is currently running
  2. Retrieve information about the latest version of our addin from the web
  3. Compare these two versions and decide whether the currently running version is outdated

Nice work, and very simple to implement.
