[wp-hackers] Update of own plugin

The WordPress inbuilt Plugin upgrade functionality requires the plugin to be
hosted on WordPress.org: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/

No plugin headers (such as Update Server) are taken into account, Your
plugin may add update checking functionality in itself if you wish, You'll
have to write a API server for your plugin and filter the plugin update
transients to add the results of the transient if you wish. I know some
people have implemented this, I'm not aware of a published article on it
