You know... the dashboard would be damn near perfect for this.
If every plugin had an RSS feed for release announcements, and the plugin;
(1) Hooked into the feed polling locations for the dashboard and;
(2) Retrieved it from the owner's website (or wherever the RSS feed is
hosted, as indicated by the plugin);
That would be the perfect centralized announcement location.

A lot of us have always said/thought the dashboard should be a LOT
more customizable / flexible...
