    Actually even the new plugin search does it as well.

    Hi there.

    Same thing for me. The new version 0.97 breaks the plugins search, favorites, tags, popular, etc.

    I can confirm that version 0.97 causes plugin search, featured, popular, newest, and favorites to not function at all (this also happens with themes). I get the following error message with each of those options:

    An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server's configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.

    I'm using it on a Multisite install, only activated on the main site. When the plugin is activated, I get "Version 3.7-alpha-25000" (with no update link) in the lower right of the admin. When I deactivate the plugin, I get the usual "You are using a development version (3.7-alpha-25000). Cool! Please stay updated." message.

    I believe the purpose of the latest plugin update was to not constantly show a message indicating that a new version was available when there wasn't one. If you go to Tools -> Beta Testing, you see the following message at the top of the screen:

    Please note: There are no development builds of the beta stream you have choosen available so you will receive normal update notifications.

    The WordPress Updates page shows "You have the latest version of WordPress." at the top, indicating there is no new nightly build available.

    So that change is working as it should, but causing issues with plugins and themes.

    I've figured out the problem, tested, and created a patch against trunk that fixes the issue, along with some minor changes to messages (mainly punctuation), and a few typo fixes. Patches are welcome, right Westi? :)

    Not quite.

    The purpose of the last update was to force all communication with api.wordpress.org to happen over https.

    It seems I missed a request that gets made :(

    So, I debugged this some more :)

    And the code works for me, which means you are luck luck people @thee17 and @greglone because your WordPress installs are unable to make https connections to api.wordpress.org :(

    Can you report that on this trac ticket and we will work there to work out why https doesn't work on your hosting and how we can make it work.

    Thanks!

    Hi Peter.

    Thanks for the answer.
    Done, I've reported the bug on the trac ticket.

    Bye
