Aware of later development (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

alert

Here is my best explanation:

'aware' is the definition.

('alert' can be a synonym of 'aware')

'later development' is the subsidiary indication.

'development' indicates anagramming the letters.

'later' with letters rearranged gives 'alert'.

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for alert that I've seen before include "Warning signal", "Awake, attentive", "Wide-awake and watchful", "Watchful; warning", "Watchful, quick-thinking", "'Attentive, vigilant (5)'", "Watchful and bright", "On one's toes", "Vigilant - warning" and "Intellectually active".)
