I agree... and i got an idea, actually in the dashboard show up a
message that inform about new WP version available, woudl be nice
having a message that inform about avability of new updates for one or
more plugin, not a list of updatted plugin but somethign that inform
there is updates available.. a rd icon with an exclamation mark
besides the plugin menu entry would nice too... sometimes i forget for
a couple of weeks to check plugins pages of one of my blog and this
would be a nice remind. The exclamation icons beside the plugin menu
would be better than a message in dashboarda cause ti woudl be visible
in every admin page.

"Unactive Plugins" sound better? I will change the "Currently Active
Plugins" in a more simple "Active Plugins" too
