    55== Remove features for dynamic updating of plugins ==
    6 Originally (versions 3.0, 3.1, 3.2) , it was possible to dynamically update all or selected plugins dynamically using the plugin infrastructure. For this we hosted an update service that provided meta-information and binaries of plugins. This functionality is however not supported anymore, therefore all the code for dynamic updating can be removed. We decided that plugin updating is not necessary. Instead, users should just download the whole HeuristicLab package whenever a new version is released.

    3739 - Grouping plugins to products is not really useful and was never effectively used in HeuristicLab 3.3.x.
    3840 - Working with the plugin administration UI is quite cumbersome. The usability should be improved.
    39  - Codename of the release and release date should be shown in the SplashScreen (#2406)
     41 - Codename of the release and release date should be shown in the SplashScreen and the about dialog (#2406)
