Hi All,


I've been looking for a definitive list of which Snow components are updated by SUS.

I think it would be a great idea to document which components are automatically updated and (more importantly) which components/services require manual interaction.

I wasn't sure where to put this info - if it should not be in a Discussion I can move it somewhere else.



The latest version of all Snow Applications can be downloaded from here:


Here is a list - which I hope we can all add to.
