The main Plug-in adds a few nice features and finally brings Retina Support to the QC Editor. As well as the Plug-in it also install a bunch of macros that replicate a lot of in built functionality and repackages them in a more user friendly manner. There is also a bunch of example files to get show it all in action.

It look like the project could bring some new people to the world of Quartz Composer which will be a great thing. There has already been some updates to the github page as users have posted about bugs.
