I don't know if I'm allowed, but I download the sources and fix the plug-in for IntelliJ 95.311. It works fine and I improved it a little.Because it is not my plug-in I'm not publishing it. But you can get it if you send me email to boaznahum@gmail.com or boaz_nahum@amat.com (or better both of them).

Very handy and useful plugin. It would be really nice to have ability to select plugins that need to be updated from update notification dialog.

Thanks,
