thanks fir the update Roberto, can you tell me where we are with the 
extension update Url and the service behind. Do you need help to 
understand what the service has done? We have to check the code to

In the extension manager dialog the user can ask for updates of 
installed extensions ... But I am sure you are aware of this ;-)
