Why Don’t I See an Update from 1.1.0

When the initial version (1.1.0) was uploaded to the plugin repository, the Update URI plugin header was accidentally included. This plugin header prevents downloading updates from the API.

The Update URI header is very useful when your plugin is NOT hosted on the repository. However, now that the plugin is hosted on the repository, the Update URI plugin header should not be included.

If you are stuck on version 1.1.0 and want the latest version, you should Delete this plugin and reinstall it.

Once you move beyond version 1.1.0, you should no longer experience this problem.

This is great to create block variations from. And now with block and theme.json it will be even more useful to figure out all those attributes.
