The portals are there for news, not a version tracker. Press releases about something more interesting than "X application has fewer bugs now, and has another number on its version string" isn't really news, unless it's a major release. Both drobe and iconbar do "roundup" articles every now and then that are used for software updates. If every software update that came along had its own news article, it would make for a very interesting news portal. As a matter of fact, iconbar has a section on its front page (right hand column, about half way down) for software updates.

What you should also remember is that drobe and iconbar are run in people's spare time, not as a full time occupation. The editors have limited time to do stuff for the site. They also have no obligation to post every press release thrown under their noses...
