Just to understand: if I'll break forrest 0.7 with a change to some
plugin I'll need to create a new version of it?

I've seen some of the discussion.
We'll need to relate the plugins to (released) versions of forrest.

We use forrest at customer's sites and I simply would like to point
them to the download page and say: get the latest release (update).
It's hard talking them into svn and stuff :-)

So, are the updates to the released forrest-0.7 brought back to the
binary distribution at ?

As far as I see: No.
If yes we would need sub-versions like 0.7.2, right?
