Running 2.7rc1 on DownTownHost.
For some reason the plugin updaet information is not fetched. That is, I know that half the plugins that I have installed (active or not) have been updated since I've installed them. in 2.6.* WP would alert me when the update was available and automatically install it if I choose to. Now, however, WP acts as if no updates are available and I have no idea how to force it to check for plugin updates.
