 [attachment:28654.2.diff] adds the overhauled 'Adding Plugins' tab on

 The Install Plugins screen gives you several good options for finding the
 plugins that fit your needs. If you know what you’re looking for, search
 is your best bet. If you simply want to browse plugins that are featured,
 popular, new, or favorited, you can use the various sorting modes
 available at the top left of the screen. The default sorting modes

 * '''Featured Plugins''' listed here are featured by WordPress, and fall
 into three distinct groups: Performance, Social, and Tools.
 * '''Popular''' Plugins are ordered by popularity, with a bit of special
 sauce mixed in to give you the most relevant results.
 * '''Newest''' If you’re feeling adventurous, this view lists the newest
 plugins available on WordPress.org
 * '''Favorites''' Browse a user’s favorite plugins by entering a valid
 WordPress.org username and clicking Get Favorites.
 * ''(selectively displayed)'' '''Beta Testing''' Plugins listed here are
 useful for beta testing WordPress. This group is only available for those
 running the Beta Tester plugin or a development version of WordPress.

 If you want to install a plugin that you’ve downloaded elsewhere, click
 Upload Plugin in the upper left. You will be prompted to upload the .zip
 package, and once uploaded, you can activate the new plugin.
