Here it is: Recent Gimp plugins RSS feed

    Thanks for doing this! It’s one of the several things that I occasionally do a scan through but having it as RSS is must more convenient.

    The biggest issue with, is tho followings:
    – many duplicates
    – lack of versioning (there are different versions around). Can the original submitter change the description, version, etc, etc?
