The new plug-in manager in v4.5 is a start, but it seems to mostly be for showing/hiding plug-ins in the Browser. It should actually provide the ability to fully disable/blacklist selected plug-ins, so that they never even startup in S1 at all. Surely avoiding any plug-in's possible impact to S1 (e.g. crashes, slowdown, etc.) would be one of the main benefits from managing plug-ins like this.

Unless the functionality is hidden somewhere within this new window, there seems to be no way to do that.

I would also hope this could be done for more than one plug-in at a time. Right now, the plug-in manager only seems to allow updates to one plug-in at a time, which is massively time-consuming for users with a large number of plug-ins.

Access from the settings / home page, rather than having to open a track first, would be nice too!

could we please also be able to sort plug  ins into folders in the manager window?  for example, I'd like to remove the "soundtoys" file and put Decapitator into the Distortion file.  Makes more sense to do it in that window that using the Browser.
