I was wondering if you could bring back the upgraded plugins list like you had on the 1.6 system. It becomes kind of a pain to check every plugin to see if it has been updated.

Thanks
If plugin authors use the key 'codename' in their _info function the Plugin Updates will show if it has an update available or not.
I think I understand. So it's the fault of the plugin author. I seen some plugins updated up to 5 times and it wasn't listed under recent activity.

I imagine that more plugin authors will add this in for the future. I personally think you bring up a good point in that many forum owners don't see it listed on the plugin updates tab due to the error in the plugins themselves. I am guilty myself with this on my own plugins, as the usage of the codename marker was initially undocumented with the release of MyBB 1.8. (Even the hello world example plugin that comes with MyBB 1.8 doesn't make use of it, believe it or not. Toungue)
Thanks, I agree it's a good point. The way it is now makes it time consuming to see what plugins have been update. The old system made it easy by clicking on latest updates and latest submissions.
Yeah, I agree. I think that will change as plugins are better documented for 1.8 and more developers use the codename property. I myself will definitely be using it from here on forward. For the time being, it is a little inconvenient to find that the ACP was not correct in reporting that all plugins were up-to-date. Toungue
