What is the current status of this plugin?

Development has been resumed in February, 2010 after a long hiatus.

Why does this plugin need WordPress 2.9

Version 0.1 used DavesFileCache, a caching class I developed a while back. Unfortunately, another
of my plugins uses that same cache and there were conflicts. As this plugin is still an early
development version (although I appreciate all the folks trying it out), I figured now would be a good
time to adopt the new Transient API in WordPress 2.9.
