Mu-plugins update

I have some plugins set as mu-plugins, like ACF. I was wondering how can I get notified when there are updates available for mu-plugins, since they will not appear in the update notifications nor show their update status on the plugins page.

Here is the part of my composer.json that is relevant to this post:

  "require": {
    "php": ">=5.6",
    "composer/installers": "^1.4",
    "vlucas/phpdotenv": "^2.0.1",
    "johnpbloch/wordpress": "4.9.4",
    "oscarotero/env": "^1.1.0",
    "roots/wp-password-bcrypt": "1.0.0",
    "wpackagist-plugin/advanced-custom-fields": "*",
    "wpackagist-plugin/contact-form-7": "*",
    "wpackagist-plugin/polylang": "*",
  "extra": {
    "installer-paths": {
      "web/app/mu-plugins/{$name}/": [
      "type:wordpress-muplugin", "wpackagist-plugin/advanced-custom-fields",
      "type:wordpress-muplugin", "wpackagist-plugin/contact-form-7",
      "type:wordpress-muplugin", "wpackagist-plugin/polylang"


composer outdated will tell you if there are newer versions of your dependencies.

Also, I think wp plugin list should too.


composer outdated was what I was looking for. Thanks!
