Category Access 0.8.2 and WP 2.3.3 (1 post)

    Is there anyone who has had any success with getting Category Access 0.8.2 working with WP 2.3.X I upgraded to WP 2.3.2 and then to 2.3.3 and in neither of those installations is the new Category Access that is supposed to work with 2.3 working correctly.

    I tried with a bunch of templates including WP default, and the main page just shows a bunch of empty most recent posts that are not in the categories that should be visible. Previously an anonymous or user would come to the site and
    see only the category "Public" and see one or 2 posts that belonged to that category. Since upgrading to 2.3 and 0.8.2, this is what thescreen looks like to an anonymous or newly registered visitor who has not been given access to additional categories yet, or someone who has limited category access where recent posts may not be in
    categories they can see.

    The drop down shows only the allowed categories, but the posts do not show correctly. On my own template I do not get this list on the main page, just a blank. If I click on the category the page shows blank. I thought it may be a template issue, but no better results with the default or other templates.

    I disabled all other plugins, and problem remained.

    This is not a workable solution. I'd like either Category Access to work with 2.3 or I need a plugin that will allow me to control access and also not reveal the full list of categories in the sidebar. I tried Category Allow, but it shows the full list to everyone even people who are not logged in.
