Plugin Update Notification
Even if update notification isn't in your wordpress install, 'simply' having a feature in wordpress.org where you 'save' the plugins you're using, and showing date/version/changelog data there would seem more than sufficient for most people (would draw a lot more traffic to wordpress.org), and would seem much easier to implements there than in the WP build itself.
A plugin and WordPress version update checker would be immense. The plugin repository needs to update a text file or RSS file for each and every plugin on the repository, so that a plugin update checker can be integrated to read this file for each plugin and compare it to the installed version. Simple and effective.
WordPress should do exactly the same and read a text file that contains a version number, then compare it to the installed version, simple! It would be extremely easy to do it for WordPress yet it hasn't been done, I don't see why not though.
Done. WordPress 2.3 is live and Plugin Update Notification is working.
Now we need the ability to update these plugins using the dashboard, pretty much like I can do at an SMF forum. That would be wicked. :D
