I've got Apache deployed on multiple Windows machines and would like to automate the process of update checking and upgrading as much as possible.
I know one can track source releases on GitHub but I'd like to stick to Apache Lounge releases.
From https://www.apachelounge.com/viewtopic.php?p=37892#37892 I've gathered that the change log and the download page here are common places to check for new releases.
And while I'm fine with parsing HTML output to check for new versions, this is rather error prone.

So, are there any more machine-friendly ways of checking for new Apache Lounge releases?

If polling of the downloads page is indeed the way to go, what is considered a polite maximum polling intervall?

Github does not say anything about dependencies like OpenSSL. Mostly when OpenSSl has a new release we are updating our HTTPS download.

Average, the download is updated 2-4 times a year.

@Steffen It would be very easy to offer a json file on the server with the current version and an AL build date.
