a) The program's name is The GIMP. (all caps)
b) In GIMP they are called "plug-ins" not "plugins"
c) Yes, the format for plug-ins has changed extensively. Don't even
imagine using an old plug-in when 1.3 or 1.4 comes out. They are
completely rewriting the core GIMP code. If you want plug-ins for GIMP,
check the registry. Also check who the maintainer of a plug-in is.
Sometimes poking a maintainer and letting them know people still use the
plug-in gets them to update it. But all GIMP stuff is done by
volunteers. So if you want to update a plug-in or make a new one, check
the docs for it and e-mail questions to the developer list. GIMPers are
happy for new developers and very supportive with helping fix things and
