The tool is actually able to prompt the user if and when an updated version is available. Not only does it prompt the user when an update is available, but provides a download link and instructions for updating all without ever having to leave/quit the Alteryx Designer.

Not only can the tool be updated without having to restart Alteryx, but it can update each instance of the tool without disrupting any user input and/or persisted tool configuration that already existed! Yes, seriously :-)
