I'm currently responsible for packaging software installs for a large company.  One of the tasks I perform is to check to see if there are new versions of different software installs on a semi-regular basis.  The trick is, I would like to keep more on top of it.  I would like the time from release to "Ready to deploy" to be much shorter than it is.  I just can't keep checking a couple dozen applications websites to see if there is a new version.  I've been able to keep somewhat informed by subscribing to some security based rss feeds.  Does anyone know of a good feed that is updated regularly and covers a range of the typical software a computer would have (non MS)?  Adobe's free products, Java, Firefox, Quicktime, RealPlayer, etc?

Well, it's not perfect.  It's missing some pretty popular pieces of software.  I guess the trick is, most of them autoupdate, but since we are in proxied network that requires authentication, we can't do that.  :-(
