EV Nova Launcher 2.0

EV Nova Launcher 2.0 can be downloaded from the link in my sig.
"EV Nova Launcher is a template application for installing a plug-in package or total conversion and launching EV Nova using that package. It is intended for developers to include with their package when distributing it."

This new version was made primarily to address the biggest shortcoming of v1.0: Updating to a new version of a plug-in package could be annoying as you would have to transfer all your existing pilots and any extra plug-ins you had installed. v2.0 is an entirely new app that handles this for you (among other new features - read the Read Me for more info) but the feature I'm mainly interested in getting feedback on is...
Update Checking!
Yeah, this is probably a bit over the top. But it's there and I'd like to know what people think of the design, how such a scheme might work if you designed it yourself, and whether this might actually be useful or if it's just a pointless gimmick.
Comments, questions, suggestions, etc for anything else are also most welcome.

P.S. If anyone can come up with a cool default icon for the app, I'd love to see it!
