Description Jiri Kovalsky 2009-03-26 16:08:22 UTC
Plugin Portal homepage has a "Featured Plugin" section that promotes recently published cool plugins every other week.
The list of plugins to be featured is held in an internal Wiki however it would be great if there was a stack of plugins
that would change the featured plugin automatically and notify someone in case the stack has only last remaining plugin.
It happens sometimes that featured plugin is changed later because humans simply forget to manually set it.
Administrator would only need to collect enough of plugin IDs and load the magazine.

This is a candidate for Plugin Portal 2.2.
Comment 2 Jiri Kovalsky 2014-07-28 11:44:50 UTC
Could this be implemented for NetBeans IDE 8.0.1 release? Increasing priority.

this is now deployed live

Seems great so far. We will see if the featured plugin changes next Monday. :) Thanks Honzo!
