Maybe I am a little excited for only just finding this plugin but here goes
Automatic Updater 

Automatic Updater keeps your WordPress install up to date with the latest releases automatically, as soon as the update is available.

So I dont have to screw around each time i visit the back end of sites updating its already done! and it sends you an email to tell you!

Damm I wonder what else I dont know about !!!

But what happens when a bad plugin update is released which kills the site or part of the theme isn't compatible. I prefer to update manually after to many bad plugin updates.

Not sure why WordPress discussions are put in the Windows category, but thats just my OCD flaring up.

You will have an interesting time if your plugin updates WordPress when WordPress 3.6 is released (right around the corner, was scheduled for april 29th). There are some changes to how Javascript in plugins are handled and I am willing to bet that a few plugins will choke when 3.6 is released.

Which means that your auto update sites could stop working properly, even if the plugin seem to "behave" vs WordPress.
