Comment (by Kniebremser):


 Please do not get me wrong.
 The new look I find top. I am bothered only the displayed plugins.
 Under the tabs "Featured" and "Popular" I see plugins with many downloads
 and good ratings.

 For example:
 Tumblr Importer
 Last Updated: 1 year
 Untested with your version of WordPress

 How can I recommend a plugin where I do not know if it works with WP 4.0?
 The development of WordPress continues. Does the plugin works with my WP
 A newbie or a user without php knowledge might thereby destroying its WP
 installation and stands on lost positions.

 My idea is a checkbox for "Featured", "Popular" and "Search", where
 enabled by default "Show only plugins that are compatible with my WP
 version". The user must own the checkbox to disable to see outdated and
 untested plugins.
