"Service Studio and Integration studio both do automatic version checks for released versions (it looks like you miss a lot, but in reality, only every 5 or so builds available for download are marked as true releases). "
That is why I was wondering about the update, good to know that but still need the manual updates check.
"The best bet is to just subscribe to the daily newsletter, not only is it a great way to stay in touch with the community and learn new things, but every new download is listed there as well. :)"
I'm already subscribed to the daily newsletter, it's a great source of information about the AgilePlatform.
