With this hack you can easily check all installed products for updates, it show it directly in the product manager and with one click it checks all hacks for updates.
The information is updated every night per cron job and when you want it can inform you with an admin message or an email, you can also de/activate the notification for each hack individually.

FAQ:
Why it doesn't check the newest version on each load?
Because it would take to long until the page would load. And I'm to lazy to make an async check (Too much to change ...).

It shows an error with the hack X. Can you correct this?
No, that is a fault of the hack author. He/She made an error in the version check url. My hacl has only an error if the build in version check show something different then mine (that in the drop down box ...).
