Check for Extension Updates: Update Information should be written to sys_log
If you install/remove an extension this is always logged to sys_log table. Example: "Extension list has been changed, extension xyz has been removed/installed."
IMHO this functionality should also be provided for extension updates in Extension Manager. This would be a great feature to follow the update history.
The log entry could be saved like this: "Extension xyz has been updated/changed from version 1.0.0 to version 1.2.5."

eg line 2047 $GLOBALS['BE_USER']->writelog(5,1,0,0,'Extension list has been changed, extension %s has been %s',array($extKey,($this->CMD['load']?'installed':'removed')));
Note that this is buggy this way because two different messages (installed and emoved) have the same msg no. So while you're at it you could start with a bug fix that creates the new messages 5.1.1 and 5.1.2 for installing and removing as a starter. And please add the version number in the new log message.
