Yes, the check URL can be changed in the configuration - see UpdateURL
in program/version{rc,.ini}

Download interface, like that it downloaded the version when available,
and just offered the user to install it when she wants?  The code that
handles this is still there, but I don't provide this on the server side
as I think this is too intrusive, and potentially dangerous for people
who are still on dial-up.

Or did you mean something different?
