I-Installer offers in the i-Package menu the item "Open Updated  
Packages…" or ⌘U. Afterwards you can decide to update even more.  
Just bear in mind that you put your updates into the texmf.local  
tree – the others are under the control of i-Installer, every change  
there will be lost when you update with i-Installer. And then don't  
forget that later some i-Package can contain updates of the updates  
you installed ... and since the TeX search path is your private tree  
first, then the texmf.local tree, then the other trees, your future  
antiquated software will continue to be used.

Private updates should be restricted to some really important and  
faulty packages.

And then there is a change going on: from old and dead teTeX to a TeX  
Live based distribution. Could be your future will be brighter in  
dull November ...

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
