Description
We have basic functionality for Sparkle in the plugin right now, but it doesn't actually update the plugin when triggered. This bug tracks getting the plugin to call Sparkle to check for an update and verify that the plugin has actually updated.

Follow-up bugs will be filed on the UI, restart behavior and other remaining functionality.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Added missing values in Info.plist, moved Sparkle calls to main thread since they can potentially post UI, and did necessary initialization as indicated in Sparkle docs.
