WordPress plugins are updated quite frequently and that is not a hassle anymore due to WordPress having a inbuilt mechanism to allow users to update their plugins from the plugins dashboard.
However a problem arises when the plugins readme files are not updated to add in information about the latest available updates.
As a plugin developer myself I would really want to show the users some information about the changes available in the new version, so that they have the information, before they actually updated the plugin, but how do you do it?
As part of our send us tips on twitter, I came across something that will help plugin developers show some information about the updates in the plugin, as to what has changed in the newer version, by adding few lines of code to their plugins.
Definitely useful and helps in giving users more information on the updates. For more information on how you can add notices to plugin upgrades visit Expanding Plugins Panel.
