Description

As a matter of security and possible incompatibility with future WordPress versions I always make sure the plugins I'm using are being actively developed and haven't been abandoned.

It would be a great asset if a "Last Updated Date" field was added to the Plugins Page of the WordPress backend so I can quickly gauge the age of my various plugins and start looking for an alternatives more efficiently.

Apparently 18821 was a commit, not a ticket. See #17979, [18821] re: [19062].

It may be a time for a revisit since we need to consider notifying/educating users to the following:

  • Last Updated (warning for 2+ years)
  • WP Version supported (currently only visible in modal)
  • PHP version supported (see #40934 )

Possibly rephrase this as "Notify users when their plugins may cause them pain"
