    this would be just a framework that would let you build the GUI around it
    what are some of the features you guys like to see in it
    features included
    -full cocoa based
    -simple growl support
    -checks based on any RSS feed or XML file
    -based on XMl or rss, gets version number and release notes

    Features i am working on
    -download and install app (this is almost done, but i want to have .pkg support too and that is giving me some trouble)
    -check appcaster for updates
    -check google code for an update
    -twitter to author of app if you have updated
    -bittorrent support for downloading app
