WP 4.5.3 - Just FTPing wp plugin content to plugins folder is not enough anymore for WP to load it?

It seems that you need to use Plugins->Add New->Upload new plugin from ver 4.5.3.
Otherwise, it doesn't seem to appear in WP Plugin list.
This needs some testing.


After testing, this proves to be wrong. You can  upload new plugins the same way as before (by simple FTPing).

My problem here was with a 3rd party plugin, which added a handler on all_plugins filter and removed some plugins from the plugin list.

This reminded me on fact that WP design has some flaws. Any plugin can do anything it wants, and can influence any other plugin (no separation between their contexts). Just like programming was in old DOS days.
