The team have also added a Plugin Installer, here is a quote from that thread:

In the forthcoming 1.4.0 release a new framework for distributing/installing plugins is added to UMS. The feature is meant to ease the burden on how to install plugins as well as the burden of distributing them. In the future plugins can be released via this website and rated etc.
This is a rather big new feature so there might be some issues with it, so please report any problems found with it.

So how does it work?
As a user you’ll find a Download and Install Plugins button in the General Configuration tab. Click on it and a list of available plugins will be presented to you. The rating system is currently disabled so all plugins will have a rating of “–”. Select one or more plugins you want to install and press the Install button. Now the selected plugins will be installed and started.

Plugin developers should read the description in the Developer section.
