Just a heads up that Google released a software "update engine" a few days ago:

It uses pLists as its metadata format, but in practical terms it
doesn't differ too much from widgets updates.

For example,
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
<plist version="1.0">
      <string>Ticket.version != '1.1'</string>

Example comes from:

The engine does, provide some interesting update progress methods
which we should probably look at for the API side of things.

Kind regards,
