From time to time, at least once per day, in IDE (1.6.12) popup form to inform that new updates for some libs are ready. Then disappears after few seconds and there is no apparent way to manually open the form to examine info in details, until next time.

It would be more practical to allow as well manually checking when explicitly there is a time for that.

You can manually check for available updates to your installed libraries by Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries... > Type > Updatable

Oh... Thank you,

But this is very cryptic. Why not Separate Sketch and Library part ("Manage Libraries" and "Add from ZIP")?

It would be much clearer and easier.

Do you mean to suggest that the library functions should be moved to an additional menu named Library instead of the Sketch menu?

Yes, seems to me clearer to separate sketches (available demos) and manipulation with libraries.  

Seems to me also strange to have numerous menu items which will insert only #include <thelib.h> into sketch. In case of numerous used libraries, the list may be very long...
