Project Latest Release URL for Online Upgrades

Feb 26, 2010 at 5:10 PM

(Sorry I posted this in the Issue Tracker as well but meant to post it here...) I would like to build an upgrade feature into my application. Is there or could there be a CodePlex feature that provides a single URL (HTTP GET) request to return the current stable release information for a specific project? It should contain the release name, date, wiki link release number, and a direct download URL. That would provide applications enough info to display to the user, ask them if they want to ugprade the app, and choose to download an install it.

This is a feature for future consideration, and you've already done what I would have recommended - create a work item. If the feature gets enough community votes, it gets moved up in priority.
