Hi,

As the PSI is not a general update checker, but a security patch checker, it will not give you the latest downloads for any program, unless that download fixes a security issue.

What sets the PSI apart from other update checkers (apart from our huge program coverage) is that it only checks for Security patches, leaving end-users to decide if they want to be on the bleeding edge, all the while feeling secure. While using the PSI does not exclude running newer versions just for the heck of it, you shouldn't expect the PSI to deliver a patch unless said patch directly fixes security problems. These decisions are made based on Secunia Advisories.

hope this helps.
