How do you keep track of current software versions?
I am interested in being very responsive to updating software, and so I am trying to figure out the best way of being notified when a new version of some software comes out. So far my ideas have been to screen-scrape filehippo.com, google alerts, and to try to find a listserv or RSS for each piece of software, but I am wondering what you do to keep on top of this particular issue?
