Michael doesn’t like the interface, and I agree. It’s kind of difficult to find the plugins unless you the type to mess with things (like I am). At least the WP developers know about it and are going to work on it.
I’ve written a few notes about the new site for those who have no idea where to go. Hopefully I’m right on some of the items! 😉
Timeline shows what’s been changed recently throughout the site, and allows you to select how far back you want to view things. Tickets are used to manage issues and bugs within a project (in this case, WordPress plugins). Wiki changes denotes any changes made to a page. These seem to describe what a specified plugin does.
Browse Source gives you a listing of all the plugins that have been checked in. It’s not a full listing of what’s available, especially since the system is new, but hopefully it’ll get there. The folders listed are simply the names of the plugins. Unfortunately, there’s no description, but at least you can try the search function with a few terms.
View Tickets show all the issues and problems that were posted to the developer. If you’re having a problem with a plugin, check here to see if it’s already been brought up to the developer before making a redundant post.
That should give you a good jumping point with the new site – I hope. 🙂
