It's pretty random depending on whether time allows playing around with 
stuff or not. Like, for me, I'm currently facing this stupid cc1 crash 
when I try to compile a VM and downgrading to a previous version to 
figure out what exactly went wrong where has proven to be an 
extraordinary pain in the rear end.

If you want to update your plugin(s) on your own, you should get a build 
environment set up and build them externally (so people can use them as 
drop-in replacement).
