Add a "Recently Updated" Plugins' view

I will propose a new "view" in the plugins list. Like "Recently Active", a "Recently Updated" can be useful to know which plugins have been .... recently updated, obviously.

I did this as a plugin, but i think it could be logical to get this in core, here come my (first) core patch.

Also, i add you this snippet, i don't know where to put this function i use each time before the 'upgrader_process_complete' hook.

function wp_set_recently_updated( $array ) {
	$recently_updated = get_option( 'recently_updated' );
	foreach ( $array['plugins'] as $plugin ) {
		$recently_updated[ $plugin ] = time();
	update_option( 'recently_updated', $recently_updated );

So nobody gets confused, #19573 was about the most recently updated plugins on, whereas 28085.patch is for the plugins that the user has most recently updated on their site.

I think this makes a lot of sense when auto updates are enabled for plugins. Not as sure about by default, though, and I'd want to further consider what gets shown - changelog seems more appropriate than description.

A part of the plugin I wrote is this. Check It's still a Work in Process. Special what Helen mention is what do you show the users.

To throw another idea on the stack - I've always thought that the main Updates page would work well with a osx-style update history, showing whats available for update, and when/what/changelog of updates that have already been performed (Automated, or manual).

We'll need a refreshed patch for starters. If you could generate that from the root instead of the wp-admin directory, that would be helpful as well :-)

Hello there.
