C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\v2.0>tlmgr --version
tlmgr revision 20400 (2010-11-11 01:25:35 +0100)
tlmgr using installation: E:/TeX/Live/2010
TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2010

But it would be nice if the main pane could say

"Last updated 23-Nov-2010 : you should probably update again !"


"Last updated 03-Jan-2010 : no more recent version available"
(after an online check).

Not sent from my i-Pad, i-Phone, Blackberry, Blueberry, or any
such similar poseurs' toy, none of which would I be seen dead
with even if they came free with every packet of cornflakes.
