It's too early to say "how I like" GlassWire because it's really in its earliest stages of data collection.
I have found it very useful in terms of seeing what's actually making connections out to the internet, how often, and, as you noted, notifications of version changes on software it's been monitoring when that occurs.
I don't get tons of notifications, period. Most were within the first few hours to day or so as various things were connecting. For those who believe that Windows 10 telemetry is this endless stream of data it quickly puts that idea to bed, particularly if you've done the minor settings tweaking to disable the Cortana service and other options you either don't use or don't want data gathering from.
I'll be curious to see what patterns emerge over the coming weeks and months.
