I understand your thoughts here. Its the old issue with outdated
packages here. Most of them will not compile their plugins at their own
and the distribution will most likely not add new plugins. Debian is
having backports for such matters, but Ubuntu is missing something like
that (at least I know of). I don't know how SuSE, RH/Fedora, * is
handling this, but they could use it to also updated Geany. 

However, once a user is compiling its own plugin, they can also compile
Geany. The dependencies are most likely similar and the efforts not
much bigger, once you have set up gcc, libgtk2-dev etc.
