I have some packages installed on the IDE with GetIt Package Manager.
How can I know if I have the latest version installed, for instance, after a month?
Must I have to uninstall the packages and reinstall them again?

Hello Carlos.

Currently, if there is a major upgrade for a package or library, then a new GetIt entry is added and the older one is closed. So you will able to see the previous one installed, and the new one ready to install. You should always uninstall the older version before installing the new one.

In case of a minor upgrade, then the GetIt entry is updated and you would need to uninstall/install to get the newest version.

We're working to improve this workflow in the future.

Best regards.
