Plugins that derive from CubePlugin depend on a loaded cube file. They can react on user actions, e.g. tree item selection, and may insert a context menu or add a new tab next to the tree views. Examples for this type of plugins are the System Topology Plugin or the Statistics Plugin which are part of the Cube installation.
Plugins that derive from ContextFreePlugin are only active if no cube file is loaded. These plugins create or modify Cube objects, which can be loaded and displayed.
