There needs to be some additional search options in the plugins section:
- Last Updated date range
- Popularity (download count) range
- Author option
- Requires additional plugins (yes/no/either)
- Supported (yes/no/either)
For the search results, there needs to be sorting options for:
- Last Updated
Also, changelog needs to be required field whenever a plugin is updated. It would be nice if we could search within search results.
There's probably some other good ideas as well. It's just getting more and more difficult to find plugins anymore. I've got to search through pages of plugins that don't work with any recent version of WP, or dozens of plugins that don't work very well just to find one that works.
