1 update.compare.inc update_calculate_project_data($available)

Calculates the current update status of all projects on the site.

The results of this function are expensive to compute, especially on sites with lots of projects, since it involves a lot of comparisons and other operations. Therefore, we cache the results into the {cache_update} table using the 'update_project_data' cache ID. However, since this is not the data about available updates fetched from the network, it is ok to invalidate it somewhat quickly. If we keep this data for very long, site administrators are more likely to see incorrect results if they upgrade to a newer version of a module, theme, or layout, but do not visit certain pages that automatically clear this cache.


array $available: Data about available project releases.

Return value

An array of installed projects with current update status information.:
