Developer website: sqwarq

Critical Updates keeps you informed of when a background update of the listed components occurs. These are controlled by the command-line softwareupdate tool and by App Store preference settings in System Preferences.

Critical Updates refreshes the Components table on launch, and about once every 60 minutes, if left running; it polls the App Store for security updates on launch, and about once every 10 seconds while running. Critical Updates has a very low energy and resource footprint, and can be left running with virtually no impact on system resources.

Features
  • Newly-updated components are colored red in the table
  • An alert appears in the window when a security update needs to be installed manually

  • Click the ‘x’ button to hide the alert message
  • Double-click any component’s name to reveal it in the Finder
  • Click the App Store icon in the window to immediately open the App Store preference settings
