Fervor, a simple multiplatform application autoupdater inspired by Sparkle
one of my Qt projects required an autoupdate mechanism and I didn't find a convincing one, so I created my own. Maybe you'll find it useful or even contribute:
- Multiplaform (works / should work on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, ...).
- Checks for updates both automatically and manually.
- Displays release notes.
- Updates might be skipped or installed later.
- Backwards compatible with Sparkle (can use the very same appcast RSS).
- BSD license.
It's not so much an autoupdate library at the moment (it only shows a link to the user with an update, and the user has to install it him/herself), but it does the job.

Really cool. I'm very much in need of such a kind of library. One doubt. Can I use this for Mobile applications, like Symbian...?
