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
