"wp-external-update-check" is a small WordPress plugin that lets you check your WordPress site(s) for updates.

It provides a secret URL to check for updates to the WordPress core, plugins and themes, without requiring cookie-based authentication. It is meant to be used from external monitoring or continous integration systems.

A simple usage example for Jenkins (requires the Python plugin for Jenkins) is given in the docs directory.
