wiki:Documentation/UnsupportedPlugins

There are a number of plugins in Xinha that are very old. Some are no longer used, some are deprecated, and some are even broken.

As of Xinha 0.96, we have moved these to an "unsupported_plugins". Plugins are still found and loaded from that directory.

By doing this, we can phase out old and broken code without any performance impact to users who don't use the plugins, and without any functionality loss if there are users who do.

If you are using an unsupported plugin, please check this list to see if there is a supported plugin that replaces it.

See #1297 for the original proposal.

If you want to fix a broken plugin and start supporting it, please file a new ticket to suggest your changes.
