Thank you for your committing of the support of plug-in parser.
I scheduled the release plan.

1. Scheduling

How about releasing like follows?

                includes plugin-example enable built-in parser by default
GLOBAL-5.8.1    Yes                     No
GLOBAL-5.8.2    Yes                     Yes

The release date is 2010/3 (5.8.1) and 2010/4 or 5 (5.8.2).

2. Description in the NEW file

I will write a description in the NEW file like follows.

New facilities:
o gtags: Added support of function layer plug-in parser by Hideki IWAMOTO.
  This package includes an example of plug-in parser which uses Exuberant ctags.
  To execute it, please try the following:
  (It assumed that Exuberant ctags is installed in "/usr/local/bin".)
        $ ./configure --with-exuberant-ctags=/usr/local/bin/ctags
        $ make install
        $ gtags --gtagsconf=/usr/local/share/gtags/gtags.conf 

gtags: Gtags using function layer plug-in parser always makes all tag files
even if some of them are empty. Old style command layer plug-in parser makes
only specified tag files. The new specification is better than old one for the
reason that tag files of different parsers don't mix.
If you want to know whether a tag file is empty or not, please do the following:
        $ global '.*' -r                # GRTAGS is empty?
        $ global '.*' -s                # GSYMS is empty?

If there is something problem, please let me know.
