Disables the plugin update checking and notification system.
== Description ==
Completely disables the plugin update checking system in WordPress. The plugin prevents WordPress from checking for updates, and prevents any notifications from being displayed on the Plugins page. Ideal for administrators of multiple WordPress installations.
= Please note! =
It's *very* important that you keep your WordPress plugins up to date. If you don't, your blog or website could be susceptible to security vulnerabilities or performance issues. If you use this plugin, you must make sure you keep yourself up to date with new releases of your active plugins and update them as new versions are released.
== Installation ==
1. Unzip the ZIP file and drop the folder straight into your `wp-content/plugins/` directory.
2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
== Frequently Asked Questions ==
= Why would I want to disable the plugin update system? =
Most people will not want to (and should not) disable this feature. It's a fantastic feature WordPress and I'm fully in support of it. However, administrators who maintain multiple installations of WordPress on behalf of other people (eg. clients) may not want plugin update notifications to be shown to the users of these installations. This plugin is for them.
= Can I disable the WordPress core update notifications too? =
Yes. Please see the [Disable WordPress Core Update]( plugin.
= Can I disable the theme update notifications too? =
Yes. Please see the [Disable WordPress Theme Updates]( plugin.
== Changelog ==
= 1.4 =
* Preemptive support for WordPress 3.0.
= 1.3 =
* Support for WordPress 2.8.
= 1.2 =
* Support for WordPress 2.6.
= 1.0 =
* Initial release.
