How to check for software updates?

Other than Windows, how do you check for updates for your installed programs? I can think of two ways: mailing lists and syndication (RSS) feeds. I wish SourceForge had RSS feeds for the files section for the different software projects. In any case, are there better ways I haven’t learned about?
