Request update for plugin

Hi,

Especially Timurs excellent TabSwitchPlugin occurs so often (and I'm so
lazy to download), that it would be useful to have some kind of plugin-
registry, where each plugin registers and you are able to check the
available version and download a new version of the plugin from within IDEA
(sure, hte new version will be started, when IDEA is restarted).

What do you think?

I have a solution Tom:
Timur, please stop developing so fast. You make other plugin developers
look bad and make your users unconfortable...
I believe if you tie your right hand behind your back that will do the
trick or go to sleep! ;)

BTW I love the TabSwitchPlugin.

Tom,

Thank you! (I also want to thank all people who said nice words about my plugins :) ).

Have you looked at Chris Bartley's PluginManager
( http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/PluginManager )?
(I really need to update the registry).

BTW, you don't have to download every release. Only if you want to have the latest and greatest. :)

I think, something like this should make it into IDEA-core. I definitely
don't want to be picky, but Eclipse has such a nice "plugin-registry".

... and that's the case :) Everything, that is replaced by newer versions
is considered old.
