Oh, Im sorry, didn't know this. I searched in google but it didn't give me this link. Though, if it's removed then why it is in program options still?! when I saw that option it logically rejected the thought that it could be removed  :)

I read this post, does streaming updates really work in 3-5 min? that's really fast I think.

Many topics relating to this (as has been mentioned) - where the auto update notification was removed. Unfortunately leaving the option in the UI doesn't help as it causes confusion and the impression that it isn't working.
