Search, then search again.... the answer exists, your quest my friend, is to find it.

Cause it's not compatible with the new addon directory (a skin is now considered as an addon like a scrapper, ...)

Well the skin IS compatable and we will update the official SVN version asap with the update. Possibley this coming weekend.

Sorry to sound stupid but I used to get my updates for this skin via the actual program in the SVN repo thing, well that appears to have disappeared so how do I actually get the update?
My main rig is still running an older XBMC because I cannot be without Ellipsis.
p.s. what happened to your forum?

With regards to the SVN repo thing, not a clue what happened to that, you'll have to ask some XBMC folks.
Our forum was becoming such a hassle to use, because we where getting spammed daily and it became obvious that the annoyance was out-weighing the usefulness of that forum, so we decided to just use XBMC.orgs sub-forums, after all they gave us our own sub-forums for a reason!

So from that can I assume the update is not ready yet for this new plugins thing?

I noticed a skin.xml file after checking out the skin from SVN. Does this mean it should work?
It's not on either of my XBMC installs - one a nightly build from just a few days ago. Assuming it should work, anyone know how to get it appearing?

Skin.xml is for old builds.
Addon.xml is for new builds.
Make yourself an addon.xml see confluence for example.
Skin will work but will not have the addon features

Name the ellipsis folder "skin.ellipsis" and stick it in addons
You only have to look to find the answers
