JVersion Checker is a Joomla 2.5 component, very useful for people who manage many Joomla web sistes for themselves or for different clients.
JVersion Checker allows to monitor several URLs in one single screen, and check the update status of the installed Joomla version (it can check any version).
For any URL, you can have detaild infos such as:
|Up to date||Up to date, but newer major version available||Not up to date, click to update|
|Not up to date, follow manual procedure or migrate||Obsolete version||Cannot verify or error|
If the version is not up to date (red icon), it's possible to click on the icon and be redirected to the update panel for that webiste (login needed of course).
Here's a preview of the admin screen with some monitored URLs:

Some days ago, while migrating my site (this website) from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5, I had lots of problems with Jupgrade.
Jupgrade is a component by Redcomponent, usefu when migratng to Joomla 2.5 (but not only) and old Joomla 1.5 installation.
I had enormous problems, and tried everything, from various "Skips", to disabling some components and enabling CURL on the server. Nothing, Jupgrade always hanged in the middle of the migration process.
Then, suddendly, some light...After reading various forums in seacrh of a possible solution, I found the right one: disable Joomla 1.5 LEGACY MODE, that I still had enabled for a URL-Rewrite component.
A very simple module, written in 5 minutes (OK, maybe a little more) inspired by the weather.
I know it's not "Web 2.0", not even "1.0" (maybe it's "Web 0.2") but...at Christmas time everyone just wants some snow on the website ;-)
