What about simply having an iframe to
https://drupal.org/modulecheck/modulename, which returns a "You're
running the latest version" normally, or a button saying "click here
to upgrade" otherwise. The button essentially pionts to the changelog
/ install notes. (later, the button can point to the installer which
autoupgrades stuff).
