Which of the two 'suppress from latest' plug-ins to use

I want to suppress some categories from the latest page.

There seem to be two plug-ins that offer this:

https://github.com/discourse/discourse-categories-suppressed
https://github.com/communiteq/discourse-suppress-category-from-latest

Can any one tell me the difference between the plug-ins and which one is the best to use? They both seem well maintained and from well trusted sources.

Best to stick with the one maintained by the Discourse team. I’m sure the other one works just fine, but it’s nice to have the peace-of-mind that future Discourse updates are unlikely to break the plugin.

Is that plugin required now that there is a default categories muted site setting?

Yes, it works a bit differently. Muted “hides” the category in more places, including the /categories page. The plugin only hides it from /latest.

Thanks guys. I’ll stick with the Discourse provided one. The plug-in behavior is exactly what I would like. Only suppress from /latest not from /categories.
