I hope this is seen and addressed before the production release!

INSTALLEDPLUGINS seems to be something one manually sets in TWikiPreferences, but this is a PITA. I would like to suggest that at plugin load time that each plugin's name be added to this variable instead of a user having to manually update it.

It would also be quite useful to have the plugin's associated .txt page added to the TWikiPlugins page when it's installed, or alternatively added to a plugins web as has recently semi-surfaced on twiki.org. If a plugin's options can be configured via it's page, then so much the better as it exposes it to (possibly group constrained set of) users for configuration.

Plugins are now truly plug & play. As soon as you drop a plugin module into the Plugins directory it will be activated. This is the latest spec of 17 Jul 2001 Beta release.

The comment in TWikiPreferences has: You can optionally list the installed plugins in INSTALLEDPLUGINS. Note that it says optionally, you can list it but don't need to. The only reason you would do that in case you want to control the order of execution of plugins. Please update the comments in TWikiPreferences in case it is not clear enough.

All activated plugins are automatically listed in the TWikiPreferences, and also in the TextFormattingRules. See details in SimplerPluginInstallation.
