Hi, I updated to the latest version of BPCC (1.1) today and the functionality has degraded compared to previous versions.
It seems the plugin does not get the compatibility information from the actual files on the disk of the machine running it, but instead tries to obtain the file from the wordpress.org servers.
This creates two problems:
1. The “Plugins” screen becomes very slow to load, to the point where I would consider removing BPCC (sites with a lot of plugins)
2. Not all plugins are in the repository. For locally-installed plugins, even if they have the correct readme.txt file created, there is no information displayed.
3. For plugins that have different versions (case in point: WPML which has a “free” unsupported version and a payed-for supported one), the infomration is misleading since it only queries the online repository ignoring the fact that the locally installed version is different.
– revert behaviour to only reading local readme.txt file
– (more involved) combine information from local readme.txt files and repository data, preferring local data at all times.
