Installer should offer check for newer version

The Lucid livecd installer has a button to check for a newer version of the installer, why is this not available on the mint livecd? There is little point in updating to a newer version after installing and presumably newer versions are to fix bugs/problems, so users should be able to run the latest version to avoid these. A warning that internet access is required might be necessary.

@RayWoods: Not certain without checking, but seem to recall this might be in the installer for Mint 12 so might be implemented already.

I'm not sure how often this occurs but, if it does I would, like @remoulder, think it best to use the most recent (and presumably better) software.

This should definitely be standard since linux is ahead in most of everything in the game against MicroSucks!!!!

Sounds like an essential idea.
