i need to list user updates from a word press powered site, like how we get list of comments and posts using wp.getComments and wp.getPosts, and i came across wp_get_update_data can we list user updates using this wp_get_update_data, and is there any chance to list updates using rss?

What do you mean by user updates? – Mamaduka Aug 18 '12 at 9:49
its like comments and posts, normal user and admin user both can post – Ravi Aug 18 '12 at 10:44
For that functionality I would recommend checking BuddyPress core files, they do activity stream per user. – Mamaduka Aug 18 '12 at 23:08

wp_get_update_data() collects and returns number of updates available for plugins, themes and WordPress core. It's used in Admin Bar and admin update menus.
