Why the extensions have to support this? OK, for make it completly 
automatic, the have to but I think a simple notification for which of my 
installed extension are updates available would be a big advantage. Like 
it is now for single extensions.

For example. If I have the tt_news installed and I search for news in 
the Online Repository, I got a this little green circle arrows that show 
that there are updates available.

As fallback it would be nice that I have a button that checks the 
Repository for all my installed extensions. The automatic installation 
would be the next "enhancend" step... :)

I think this could be implemented on client side, but I'm sure the 
performanvce would be much better if this is implemented on server side, 
and if the client only send the istalled extension keys and receives a 
list with the extension keys for which updates available.

This is only quick and dirty "concept" that whirs trough my head... ;)
