PEAR_PackageUpdate (PPU) is designed to allow developers to easily include auto updating features for other packages and PEAR installable applications. PPU will check to see if a new version of a package is available and then ask the user if they would like to update the package. PPU uses PEAR to communicate with the channel server and to execute the update.
PEAR_PackageUpdate_Web is a web/html frontend for PPU. It is designed to be used by web packages and applications that want to include auto-updating features. See also PEAR_PackageUpdate_Gtk2 proposal that was already accepted and allow a PHP-Gtk2 frontend.
