I love the update capability in Take Command. It felt to me like Take Command 9 had not noticed any new updates in a very long time. When I request an update check, the message says "your software is up to date". Well, it is not up to date; Version 10 is out.

It would be nice if I had been told this. I was not aware that version 10 was released until I checked the web site.

One other thing that would be nice, but likely not practical: Have update warn me before my support contract expires, or include a message regarding the state of my support contract. Pie in the sky, low priority, I know.

This is deliberate -- v9 will continue to have (minor) updates; if v10
overrode the v9 updates all v9 users would either be forced to upgrade
to v10, or to stay at their fixed v9 version with no hope of updates.

That would be nice, but unlikely anytime soon!
