Something has indeed changed here, but apparently already in 5.7.1 . I have a 
version check in my platform theme plugin that prints a warning in case of a 
mismatch, and that always worked. AFAICR I didn't have to rebuild the plugin 
before it loaded when I upgraded from 5.6.2 to 5.7.1, I just got that warning 
every time I started an application.

The lack of feedback is quite annoying actually, esp. since other plugins load 
without problem.
