Checkout the WordPress Codex page here:


It will tell you how "the top of your Plugin's main PHP file must contain a standard Plugin information header." The info you want to change is in there.

Description: A brief description of the Plugin.
Version: The Plugin's Version Number, e.g.: 1.0
Author: Name Of The Plugin Author
