Plugins for gedit 2 WON'T work on gedit 3, plugins need to be ported
to the new API. We know that it is a hassle, but it is not so
difficult to port them, and we needed to make some breaks due to the
Gtk3 and because we adopted a new library called libpeas for plugin
support. If you need help on porting your plugins, feel free to drop
into irc and ask questions.
