There are a number of utilities and tray widgets that inform you of
updates.  Many of these are poorly written accidents waiting to
happen, because they essentially run pacman -Sy in cron.

Here is a little script, checkupdates, that handles this in a safe and
sane fashion.  I feel it would make a good addition to pacman-contrib.
