  • Focuses ui removed
  • Keywords has-patch added

@colomet The "Plugin" menu is not required to everyone as a shortcut menu on admin bar but if everybody agrees to add plugin shortcut then i have added patch for same.

I have added "Plugin" shortcut menu option after the "Menus" which shows if current user has capability to install plugins like current_user_can( 'install_plugins' ). Please see the below attached snapshot.
