newer Mandrake versions auto-update features

hi everyone.

I was wondering if newer versions of Mandrake have any programs to automatically download libraries and updates from the Internet. and if they do exist, are they very good (meaning do they keep things up to date so that the need to hunt down libraries for installs is minimalized, and the servers that they connect to are reasonably reliable).

urpmi installs any depends as usual. As far as auto-update -- thats controlled by joining there club which isnt worth it for the price they want. I suggest subscribing to there security release mailing list and just updating when they make any updates.
