This add-on will be used for all “calls home”. It does not currently provide any UI.
It currently supports:
The Check for Updates call is used to find out the latest information about ZAP and the published add-ons. It is a mandatory add-on from ZAP 2.12.0 as this feature is used by the ZAP core.
The News call is used to find out the latest news item about ZAP - this is displayed in the ZAP desktop Quick Start panel.
