IIRC, the version of JScript depends on what you have installed in Windows, not on Plus!; Plus! uses what is available.
But would Plus! need to do anything to take advantage of any new features etc?
It mostly depends on which version of Internet Explorer is installed.
MSIE 5.5 came with JScript 5.5
MSIE 6.0, Win XP, Win XP SP1 and Win XP SP2 came with JScript 5.6
MSIE 7.0, Win XP SP3 and Vista came with JScript 5.7
MSIE 8.0 came with JScript 5.8
The so called 'JScript versions 7.0' and higher are all .NET flavors and something completely different than JScript.
JScript 7.0 is actually either 'JScript .NET 2002' or 'JScript .NET 2003' (depending on what .NET framework you use).
Moreover, the latest version of JScript is still 5.8 and everything of JScript is supported in Plus! scripting since it simply is the platform which Plus! uses. So I don't see what other 'basic features' there might be missing.

Somehow I think OP has got confused between JScript and JScript .Net.
And with that said: JScript (what Plus! uses as its scripting platform) is not the same as JScript.NET, just as C++ is not the same as C# (.NET) or VB is not the same as VB.NET.
Blame MS for the naming confusion
(also show that it is important to call the programming languages by their correct name; more than often I see posts on various forums about VB or C, while in fact people are talking about the .NET flavors)
