Canceled so far! Can not work with BukkitDev in it's current form. If BukkitDev gets updated and accomodate the changes asked by the community, I might be able to start this up again and see if I can support BukkitDev. Until that I won't provide new updates, it's just not worth putting effort into this before BukkitDev has been sorted. In the mean time check my other plugins in my signature.Download Link (DropBox) - Always the newest versionFixed (IMPORTANT BEFORE UPDATE from lower than 0.9.3.67 delete file pluginslist.txt or else it will crash) Tired of checking 10's or 100's of URLs to check up on a plugin, to find out it still hasn't been updated for the lastet Bukkit build. Here is Bukkit Plugin Watcher to the rescue. Fire it up, paste the URLs to your favorite plugins, and your set. Old thread was closed by the Bukkit Team because it was putting too much load on the bukkit servers by scraping the threads, now the application is rewritten and now uses the plugins.bukkit.org list, and caches it for 24 hours. Therefor the application no longer adds any unnecessary load on the servers. Features: Auto update on start. Extracts various data from Titles of inserted thread urls Sortable Marks fields with light yellow when they are updated with new information Import URL list from file Import/Export. Auto extract bukkit build Find installed plugins and versions Only supports plugins in Bukkit Plugins List (plugins.bukkit.org) How to use/Description: Start it (Obviously), enter new urls by clicking in URL column of the bottom empty row. In options set path to bukkit jar file (if running on the same computer you use this application) Row will automatically be updated with extracted data, and saved. Plugins can be deleted by clicking in the left (empty) column where the arrow is, so the entire row is marked, press delete. When the application is started it will load the stored data, and start updating (If there are many rows, you will notice that GUI will freeze during this update (which takes a few seconds depending on the hardware, and internet speed available). Clicking the name will open up your default browser pointing the the thread url. Only three columns are editable, URL and Manual Compat and Installed. Compat is short for Compatibility. Enter your current Bukkit Version (Or the one you want to compare against, if you are waiting for plugins to become available for the next Bukkit build before you update, or auto detect if setup to do that) in the "Bukkit Version" field, enter the Bukkit Build that you think should still support most plugins. In the default case, we know plugins working on 818 are most likely going to work on 935 because no major breakage have been going on here. This is an assumption, some plugins might work, some might not, if a plugin is only supporting a version lower than this, it's likely not working, might be though. The Bukkit Compat column is checked when the Bukkit build that the plugin supports matched the Bukkit Version you supplied. If it is higher or in between the Bukkit Version and the Compat version it will be set as indecisive, meaning it might work, it might not. If it is unchecked, the plugin supports only a version lower than the Compat build that was set. The plugin is most likely not supported. The Manual Compat can be manually set (Checked, indecisive, unchecked), which basically overrides the Bukkit Compat, so if a plugin is flagged as Indecisive, you can here set it to Checked if you know it works, or unchecked if you know it doesn't work. The Compat column basically uses the two columns before to set it's value. If the Manual Compat is Checked or Unchecked it will use this value, of it's Indecisive it will use the value of Bukkit Compat. The Installed Dropdown contains all plugins detected as installed, if will be auto filled by best effort, if it doesn't auto detect you can manually select a plugin that corresponds. Future: Tray icon, run i background checking once in a while, popup/inform when something updated, maybe select what plugins to watch and inform about (If you are waiting for a certain plugin to be updated) I have been thinking about extracting download link, as to easily (or automatic) download plugins (perhaps on certain criteria). But I'm not sure this is feasable, since there are so many different ways the download link can look and be hosted at, that I'm not sure I can find a way to reliably extract that. Auto update Compat build number from a webservice (that I provide) that will aim to be as correct as possible) Somehow connect to a bukkit installation remotely. I'm thinking about adding support for JSONAPI Others, write your ideas, and we will se where that will take us. Known Bugs: Everything is based on a "Best Effort" practice, so everything depends on the information the plugin authors writes in the thread title, and the information in the plugins.yml file in the plugin. If the plugins.yml contains wrong version information I can't do much about it. The application uses the information it is provided. Some threads can't be extracted properly yet, the reason being I am using a very sophisticated regular expression to extract the data, however there are so many ways people write their thread title that I can't support them all in one go, I will write a new method that will better cope with all plugins. I have rewritten the method, and supports very close to 100% Other bugs might occur. Changelog: 0.9 Beta: First release 0.9.1.74 Beta Improved extraction of data (A lot) Menu Import/export Better saving Some error handling Handle empty lines(urls), are now counted as delete row. 0.9.2.12 Auto detect bukkit (If pointed to location) Options Custom color for change mark Store change marks, and ability to clear Detect plugins installed Relate plugins installed with watched plugins Status(And icon) to show Error, Up to date, update available and Not installed Use plugins.bukkit.org to extract thread titles from. Faster 0.9.2.13 Fixed 2 small bugs 0.9.3.67 Rewrote scraping to support Plugin List "official API" (Thanks to the bukkit team and lukegb for giving us an official way to get this data) Fixed correct sorting of numbers (bukkit build version) Plugin threads that are inserted are now checked against installed plugins and autodetected when inserted. (Can only detect against plugins already present when application is launced) Fixed the bug that was mentioned as the last known bug (The application extracts the.........), it turns out it happened when files were readonly. If pluginslist.txt is deleted it will force a new recache of Plugin List, please don't use just for fun, to force a recache, there is a reason why I'm caching the scrape. 0.9.4.43 Rewrote and almost perfected extraction of data from thread titles, now supports almost 100% of all plugins. Supports Plugin submissions, when they follow submission guidelines 0.9.4.45 Fixed some bugs when saving, which caused categories to duplicate. Technical: Data stored in stored.xml file in the path of the file. Requires .Net 4.0. Application is scraping plugins.bukkit.org and storing a cache for 24 hours. Using this it can get the thread title using the forum url.
