gnome-software notifies only once per week as per design (or more often
when there are pending security updates available), but at the same time
it does prepare the offline update as soon as it finds new updates so
it's possible to install the updates manually more often if you want to,
either through the gnome-shell shutdown dialog or from gnome-software

I don't think there's been a behaviour change here, unless there's a bug
somewhere of course.

A side effect of this, is multiple package versions are being downloaded but not installed; only the latest version is installed. a.) this is consuming bandwidth for no purpose and b.) PackageKit only removes the downloaded packages that it installs, anything not installed remains behind to take up space, never being deleted.
