thanks in advance for clarifying things :)

ok, clear since version 4.2, I guess that for previous versions
without prefix is going to be difficult to tell if they are
compatible, the most probable thing is that are not, right?

ok, so for each DM release there should be a plugin update responding
to the correct naming, so that is clear is compatibility.

Which is the correct way to upload a plugin to that directory?

Thanks for everything
