Wordpress 2.7 Plugin Management

Has anyone else noticed how awesome plugin management has gotten in this version?

If you want to add a new plugin, you can do it directly from the admin interface - either by uploading a Zip file; or you can directly browse the Wordpress plugin site from your admin panel and install with one click. Definitely a better way of doing things than ever before; and probably a godsend for people who aren’t comfortable with FTP.

Looks like automatic upgrade is baked-in as well now; so we don’t even have to use the separate plugin for that (although I like the multi-step nature of the plugin, and the way it forces you to make a backup in advance).
