Howdy, Arf! Arf!
Either a current WordCamp or WordPress.tv had information about future plans to hide older non-updated plugins and prod developers to update with in a certain time period (2-years?). I think it would be advantageous for WorkPress.org users if the feature filter for Themes in the Admin Panel contained HTML/5, CSS/3, and "Highest Rated" checkboxs. I also think it would be advantageous if there were update filters added to the plugin download page (within 6 months, 6 months-1 yr, 1-2 years). The idea behind these additions is to make it easier for users to find the most current and highest rated software related to WordPress. Just a thought!
