archupd - Arch Linux updater

Hi all, I'd like to share a little tool I use personally to keep my install up to date: archupd (available in the AUR).

It does the following:

  • Run sudo pacman -Sc to clean up old packages.

  • Run sudo pacman -Syu to update outdated packages.

  • Show relevant pacman logfile contents, which includes the old and new version of each package.

  • Show any new package changelog entries. (In practice, most packages don't use these, but when they do, it can be interesting.)

  • Offer to remove packages that have become unrequired.

  • Display any new official Arch Linux news from RSS feed. Feed contents are retrieved in the background.

Looking into your github repos, found pacmods. It's pretty handy as well.
