Fast OnlineUpdate for SuSE (fou4s) is a bash script that provides the functionality of YOU (YaST OnlineUpdate), but can also work in background and check for updates every night. It supports resumed downloads and proxies by using wget. GPG signatures are also checked.

Release Notes: This release is the first version with SuSE 10.1 support. It is a very early beta. Don't use it with older SuSE versions; it will probably be unable to update itself.
Release Notes: Support was added for CURL and HTTPS proxies. HTTPS business product fixes were made. The reboot check has been fixed to work every time, not only during the first run. Additionally, it is now disabled if more than one kernel is installed. The --usedir option is now more intelligent. Downloading of the mirror list (--server -w) works again. The RPM cache was invalidated at every call on business products, causing bad performance. This has been fixed. The modules directory is now correctly renamed after creating a kernel backup.
Release Notes: Curl support has been improved. New support for "proxy-digest" authentication has been added (only possible with curl; auto-fallback).
Release Notes: Support for curl was added. Some HTTPS and business product fixes were done. Downloading the server list now works again. The "directory" files used by you to detect the updates are now used more exactly (and don't use patches not mentioned inside). Enable this by using "--usedir" or UseDir=1 in the configuration file.
Release Notes: This release adds an important fix for x86_64 machines; the previous release installed i586 packages instead of x86_64 ones.
