Dear Carolina,

here some notes about plugin compatibility.

Since DeepaMehta 4.2 we use a fixed naming scheme for the plugin binary (.jar) files (see https://trac.deepamehta.de/ticket/603). So, the jar filename of a plugin which is compatible with DM 4.3.x begins with dm43-. When this prefix is not there the plugin is possibly not compatible with DM 4.3.x.

Also for the DeepaMehta releases we use a strict versioning scheme in order to make more transparent to users and developers which plugins are compatible with a particular DM release. A plugin which is compatible with e.g. DM 4.2 is guaranteed to run at least in all DM 4.2.x releases without changes. When a DM release contains incompatible API changes that is reflected by an increased minor version number, e.g. 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, ...

This directory contains always the latest DM release along with a set of plugins which are guaranteed compatible with that release. Plugins not appearing there are probably not yet adapted by the respective plugin developers.

Generally we encourage all plugin developers to adapt their plugins and upload them to that directory always when a new minor DM version is released.

Thanks for caring!

Cheers,
Jörg
