I upgraded to version 2.5.0 and it's working perfectly, but it took a little experimenting to make it work. The documentation could be a clearer in a couple of places.
First, after upgrading you have to go into the widget settings and Save them even if you don't make any changes. I assume this is because of the new way the options are stored in the database.
Second, I wanted to add Capabilities so that my normal Subscribers don't see the Dashboard link. It seems that if you add a Capability to one of the links you have to put a Capability on all of them.
After I got those things set up properly the plugin works exactly as advertised.
