Description

I love updating to the latest version of WordPress, and ideally I'd do it as soon as possible. Only problem is that I, like many other sites, run a fair number of useful plugins. I usually have to hold off updating because I don't know whether any plugins will break.

It would be great if the update screen could show a percentage of plugins that are listed as compatible with the new version. This could be based on the developer's own 'compatible to' value, or the user-submitted 'works' votes - or both.

If a new update is available, and I quickly see that 90% of plugins are listed as being compatible, or working with the current version, I'm far more likely to be comfortable with updating.

Just a thought.

For installed plugins only, perhaps?

Sorry, I forgot to specify. I did indeed mean for installed plugins only.
