DD32 -- Good suggestion at the end there. Beyond that, you're reading
my mind. :)
Okay, here's another screenshot. I don't have great vision, so I am
normally against shrinking text; but it occurred to me that because
this is a message that will repeat frequently and won't likely change
much, there is no real harm in doing so.
Also, per DD32, I've removed the Status column, and I widened the
Plugin Name column a bit:
I'm definitely liking the notice in the version column.
