Ok, The Installer improvements are finished. It may still need some language 
fixes and facelifting, but all planned features are implemented. 

It checks for the updates and also for the news (a first time seen plugins) 
either when QGIS starts or when user opens the Installer window. By default 
our all four repositories are switched to not fetch on startup, but it's 
configureable. If there is any update/news, a clickable label appears in the 

Unfortunately, finally it doesn't use the QThread (yet), so fetching all the 
four repositories delays the QGIS start for about 2 seconds in my case. This 
is the reason for what I haven't decided to enable it by default.
