    4 Since version 0.9, Trac supports [trac:PluginList plugins] that extend the built-in functionality. The plugin functionality is based on the [trac:TracDev/ComponentArchitecture component architecture].
     4Trac is extensible with [trac:PluginList plugins] since version 0.9. The plugin functionality is based on the [trac:TracDev/ComponentArchitecture component architecture] with peculiarities described at [TracDev/PluginDevelopment plugin development] page.

    6 Plugins can be either installed globally, in a shared plugins directory  (see [TracIni#GlobalConfiguration Global Configuration]) or locally for specific TracEnvironment, in its `plugins` directory.
     6== Plugin discovery ==
     7
     8From the user point of view a Plugin is either standalone .py file or an .egg package. Trac looks for Plugins in a global shared plugins directory (see [TracIni#GlobalConfiguration Global Configuration]), or in a local TracEnvironment, in its `plugins` directory.
    79Except for the later case, the components defined in a plugin should be explicitly enabled in the [[TracIni#components-section| [components] ]] section of the trac.ini file.

    9 == Requirements ==
     11== Requirements for Trac eggs  ==
    1012
    1113To use egg based plugins in Trac, you need to have [http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools setuptools] (version 0.6) installed.
     
    6062If Trac reports permission errors after installing a zipped egg and you would rather not bother providing a egg cache directory writable by the web server, you can get around it by simply unzipping the egg. Just pass `--always-unzip` to `easy_install`:
    6163{{{
    62 easy_install --always-unzip TracSpamFilter-0.2.1dev_r5943-py2.4.egg
     64easy_install --always-unzip TracSpamFilter-0.4.1_r10106-py2.6.egg
    6365}}}
    6466You should end up with a directory having the same name as the zipped egg (complete with `.egg` extension) and containing its uncompressed contents.
     
    7072`easy_install` makes installing from source a snap. Just give it the URL to either a Subversion repository or a tarball/zip of the source:
    7173{{{
    72 easy_install http://svn.edgewall.com/repos/trac/plugins/0.11/spam-filter
     74easy_install http://svn.edgewall.com/repos/trac/plugins/0.12/spam-filter-captcha
