A week after the release of the new plugin system, a lot of activity has taken place. More than 30 plugins were created, and 51 new releases were published on 27 different plugins. Based on the feedback I have received from the community, I have made some tweaks to the system.
These tweaks include a newly designed homepage, the inclusion of RSS feeds and a special URL to view the older wiki documentation for some plugins.
The second post describes more enhancements based on other feedback (on the previous post). Updates based on this information include an new "overview" field to describe the plugin, a download of the Markdown syntax to make the documentation conversion easier and a "stric mode" validation if you upload a PEAR package.
