    So, WordPress is awesome.
    So awesome, they've built in a bunch of new things that used to be plugins.

    So, I wanted to know, which ones are dead, and unused anymore? Cause I want to uninstall them.

    The big ones I can think of now are WP-Sticky, WPAU, and any threaded comment plugin (though some might update to add more features).

    I just read that Kimili Flash Player screws up the visual WYSIWYG.

    Looks like ZenPhotoPress does the same thing.

    Actually, I tested ZenphotoPress on 2.7 and it didn't seem to give any trouble.

    With your new update, it's working great.

    WordPress Automatic Upgrade is another, as well as Jerome's Keywords

    Any others, folks?

    Just a heads up, WP-Sticky 1.40 will work with WP 2.7

    First of all I have to say that I'm very grateful for all the hard work people put into their plugins. I have saved so much time and effort with various plugins and continue to support them whenever possible. Additionally, I'm grateful for WordPress to host the plugin directory.

    That being said...

    I wish there was a way to have dead/broken plugins drop off the list or be categorized elsewhere if they haven't been updated in over a year or two. I find it extremely frustrating to sift through so much junk and have to waste time reading posts to determine whether or not a plugin is supported or not.

    If the owner of a plugin is serious about their work, then I would think they'd be willing to continually update the directory accordingly, and keep a change log. Some do, and some don't.

    Just my two cents...flame away if you wish...
