another step toward minimizing core file changing.

That's the general idea.  Especially with the latest change to these sitewide hooks, now it's possible to just upload the hook and it gets injected in the page without a need to call it :) That's BIG!

@burt I think I understand this now.  For me, I can look up the versions as noted.  I modified the language file a bit to help remind me whenever down the road where to start when doing a version change...

I am not a professional webmaster or PHP coder by background or training but I will try to help as best I can.

I remember what it was like when I first started with osC. It can be overwhelming.

However, I strongly recommend considering hiring a professional for extensive site modifications, site cleaning, etc.

There are several good pros here on osCommerce. Look around, you'll figure out who they are.

Perfect!  A hole in one.

If anyone else tested this new system (zip link for Frozen in first post), thank you for taking the time.  If you have constructive feedback (or ideas) I'm all ears.

came up with an idea, a page that checks you are running the latest version of a script

e.g. lets say you got jquery 3.3.1 installed via the hook, it will compare what it says in the hook, to what is currently available.

and tells you if you are up to date, or if you need to update that script 

e.g. cdnjs have got an api which returns results in json format - which i was able to do a very basic check against - but it is not going to be prefect, as they have only got up to font awesome 5.8.2 and not 5.9.0

as that would be easier looking at one place than having to look at multiple different places
