The UpdateInfo plugin has indeed only been enabled by default in the Qt Creator that comes with the online sdk. But it's part of the creator sources, and even shipped, but disabled, in the standalone installer. I'm not familiar with the sources though, and enabling it 'by hand' is not a supported use case :)

(Anyhow, it's also disabled/non-functional in the latest online installer ... the idea is to update it in Qt Creator 3.0).

Right now, no. But you're of course free to download/install Qt 4.x separately, and just register it in Qt Creator: That's actually quite easy ... http://qt-project.org/doc/qtcreator-2.8/creator-project-qmake.html .
