Depends on the revision (or build date) your Radiant 1.5 was built of
(see about dialog). In the current trunk there should be the bobtoolz
and the prtview plugin
(both from version 1.4) and 4 new plugins.

Then you should know that you can't copy ;)
(Radiant 1.5 has a completely changed plugin interface)

gtkgensurf hasn't been ported to Radiant 1.5 until now maybe you could help out?

The 1.4 plugin have to be ported to the Radiant 1.5 interface and also built
against it.
