    The new layout for the plugins interface is attractive, functional and very welcome.The addition of a recognizable icon is also a welcome addition–any visual cue beyond having to read plain text is more than a cosmetic improvement. I’ve been doing the “bleeding edge nightlies” thing for several months now on a test site and I recommend it to anyone who has a test site they can spare for a few days or, better yet, a local testing environment. It certainly smooths the transition. Thanks to the 4.0 development team and beta-testers for all their hard work!

  2. very cool new feature that perhaps even helps in pushing plugin devs to update their plugins. Mine were already compatible up to beta version, but I used this to adjust it to 4.0 and included the new icon of course :)

  3. Here’s a thought: if we could filter plugins in our search, and limit it to those with an icon and/or banner, we could exclude all the plugins that haven’t been updated for years and may no longer be compatible…

    1. There’s no need for that: Plugins that have not been updated in 2 years don’t show up in search results. :)

      1. Doesn’t that depend on how you search? Through Administration, old ones are ignored; if through the WordPress web site they still come up (although with a note saying that it hasn’t been updated for two years or longer).

  4. The favorites feature was introduced a while ago but I don’t think it has been utilised properly yet. I think it would be great if you could install your favorite plugins with just a single click. Just a thought.

    1. Check out wpcore.com, if you’ve not. It’s a relatively new service that allows bulk installation of plugin collections. I’ve only just begun using it, but looks pretty slick.
