version check mechanism? (3 posts)

    Under admin/plugins the list of plugins will sometimes have a message underneath identifying that there's a new version available. How is that message generated? Is it a standard mechanism built-in to WP, or handled directly by each plugin?

    I'm creating a plugin and want to take advantage of this feature, but can't find anything about it in the documentation or the forums (unless I'm not searching for the right keywords).

    Only plugins maintained here on the WordPress Plugins Directory get the benefit of this.

  3. If you add your plugin to the directory, then it will be hosted here and the version update stuff will work.

    You'll need to learn to use SVN.
