Description mrmorris 2008-08-07 14:47:48 UTC
Often plugin updates pushed out breaks compatibility either by introducing regressions, fixing bugs or intentionally
changing the contract/spec. It would be nice if there were a way to roll back to a previous version of a plugin, or at
least, flag an update as "skipped" such as to say "Yes I am aware you are a new version, but you have not been reported
trustworthy so please stop bothering me". As it is today, you have to remember NOT to upgrade to the latest version and
meanwhile you are unable to upgrade other plugins that you may actually trust, to a newer version.
