"Empowering developers with over 175,000 supported gems, GemSentinel keeps you in the know about the latest updates and features!" 

Create an account, make a 'bundle list' on your console, stick it on the app, and I promise you'll be up to date on the latest features and changes to the gems you use in your projects. You will be informed of the new versions available and will have an overview as well as the link where you can access the complete changelog. Obviously you remain the sole master of the game, and it is you who decide to update them or not!
Plus we have a nice logo
