Description

Have a look at this concept: Have host plugins be updated silently in the background, without user intervention and without requiring a restart, eliminating the wait for a new general update.

JD could silently look for plugin updates each half hour for example, make updates in the background for broken host plugins, and take up again with that host's downloads while other hosts' kept downloading all along.
I've read for example that Mediafire being broken repeatedly is frustrating for many users, and a solution like this could be a good deal and make JD feel much more flexible to the end user.

(If for actually making the replacement for the updated plugin JD needed to have no downloads running at all, a temporary stop mark could be automatically set, that restarts dls when the host updates flags finished)
