The reboot recommendation/requirement issue continues on to the latest
versions.  The current approach appears to be that a reboot is recommended
somewhere in the documentations and then leave it up to the administrator to
determine if there is anything running that needs to be restarted.

It would seem to me that it would be better to require the reboot and then show
the kinds of processes that would not get updated if a reboot was not

The best approach would be for the system to examine itself and determine which
running processes require a reboot and make the recommendation based on that. 
I suspect that would be much more difficult to implement though.
