Under most circumstances, jEdit plugins do not need to be downloaded and installed manually. Usually, you can add, update, and remove plugins from a working installation of jEdit by using the bundled Plugin Manager. It can be accessed from jEdit's Plugins->Plugin Manager menu. If you would like to find out how to install plugins manually, please see the plugin installation instructions.
