I think it would be good if in the window with the listing of installed
function packages there were either some indication of the status of the
respective packages (similar to the window with the add-ons: local
status current or not). Or to have a button or clickable link or
something that checks for and update.
The thing is that right now users have to know about the existence and
meaning of the look-on-server button, and then manually have to locate
the package and compare the version number.
The context is for example recently updated packages like getQuandl or
FEP, where the previous versions fail (for different reasons). A regular
user might not guess that a new version is there and fixes the problem,
instead they might conclude that it's simply broken.
