For the love of all that is good please implement auto-update.  Or hell, automatically download the new file and say, would you like to install now?  I click yes and it goes.  I don't really care.  I love having up to date software but doing it manually is making me seriously consider a stable release.
The suggestion that using a 3rd party application is reasonable is simply in itself NOT reasonable.  This bit of functionality and those like it should be given more developmental focus in order to quickly improve this product's maturity level.
