Support for checking for new releases

P: n/a
Does .Net 2.0 provide any library support classes for notifying the user
when an interactive application (Windows Form) has an updated version of
the software available?

Other than ClickOnce, the easies thing that you could probably do would be
to create a simple web service that returns a string containing the latest
release number available.

You can use the "Version" class to convert the returned web service version
number string and the running application version number string into a
version object that you can use to easily compare.

Webservices are very easy to create.
