Update: The updated, full-featured list will from now on be available at ManageWP.org.
The extend page for plugins on WordPress.org features the most popular, highly rated, recently updated and new plugins.
But one thing missing is rising stars - plugins that are not yet quite so popular but are rapidly becoming so based on current downloads and ratings. These plugins would normally get no exposure and I decided to change that.
I will update the list every week on Monday so make sure you check come back for changes and newcomers. Interested in themes? Check Best new WordPress themes list, also updates every Monday.
The list is available in form of a WordPress plugin WP Quick Deploy, which also allows you to install any plugin from the list with just one click.
