I installed the Extensions/Testing version of this plugin on Still has issues. The empty () is gone. But it doesn't list the one extension that is still out of date. FilterPlugin is shown in the cookie, and is definitely out of date. But not displayed. So now Item13907 is broken again.

There was a missing change to not checked in. This file got de-symlinked for some reason.

Not sure what's going on. I rebuilt and re-uploaded to Extensions/Testing. re-installed and restarted Apache. I'm still not seeing the extensions list.

Argh: UpdatesPlugin makes use of numbered arguments in MAKETEXT (arg1, arg2) which didn't materialize on the 2.01 release branch. Item14080 saves it for 2.2.x.
