Rich -

I'm looking at the wordpress.org page for the plugin you linked to. The 
current version is not listed in the blue box on the right (FYI). The 
top entry should be Version: 1.5.0

I downloaded the plugin and checked your readme.txt file - you've got 
the stable tag listed for the version number, so not sure why it isn't 
showing up.

Is it possible that this is causing the issue with the update notification?
