In this post, we round up the latest cool and useful (oh, and free!) WordPress plugins now available on the WordPress Plugin Directory. This month’s WordPress Plugin Roundup includes everything from a way to add tickers and countdowns to media library organization.

Trouble finding newly-added plugins? With the redesign of the WordPress Plugin Directory came a change in the search algorithm.
