I'm writing a plugin that checks and collects data from WP - including info about installed plugins.
I can get most of the data I require using
get_plugins() - however, I'd also like to check for the latest repository hosted version of each plugin - but I can't seem to find an API method for this.
Sorry, I've got no code to paste for commenting.. but I've had a good search around - honest!
Where I can find a simple and efficient way to check?
