Thaya Kareeson has written an excellent article for plugin developers. It goes through how to make plugins work with WP Super Cache by using dynamic AJAX calls.
WP Super Cache can make static html copies of pages served by WordPress which is great for performance. Unfortunately that means some plugins don’t work because they rely on executing PHP on each request. The plugins need to be rewritten to use AJAX calls by the visitor’s browser. There’s a FAQ in the readme.txt all about it!

This is a sync of the code from WordPress 2.7 released last December. It’s taken a while but I think it’s worth the wait as there are many bugs fixed. Besides the merge with WordPress 2.7 there are also a few new features, including Viper007bond’s admin bar which is the most user visible addition.
Check the timeline for further info.

Update – if your blog is installed in a sub directory instead of at the root of your server, the .htaccess file might be wrong. Download and install the development version which corrects this. You’ll have to edit the .htaccess file (anyone want to volunteer to write an auto-upgrader?) and remove the rules between the lines # BEGIN WPSuperCache and # END WPSuperCache. Delete those lines too and visit your admin page. The plugin should do it’s stuff and spit out correct mod_rewrite rules for you. The dev version also has a few other bug fixes so if you’re adventurous have fun upgrading!
There’s no need to touch wp-content/cache/.htaccess

You need to wait for applications to load, wait for websites to download, wait for software to compile and so on.
