SBT plugin for checking for the availability of updated versions of your project's dependencies.

This plugin is not maintained anymore, there is a better version here:

How to use

Add the plugin to your SBT by adding this to project/plugins.sbt

addSbtPlugin("com.sksamuel.sbt-versions" % "sbt-versions" % "0.2.0")

Note that this is an auto plugin so only works with SBT 0.13.5 or higher.

Then simply running sbt checkVersions will cause SBT to check all your declared dependencies against maven central. Any deps that have updated versions available will be highlighted in the console.


Running this plugin on a project of mine gives:
