The year is missing from comments in the old plugins database. This is not a major problem, however when reading through comments attempting to report/fix issues with the plugin, and the plugin has been around for quite some time, it is quite difficult to see how old the comments are and how the relate to each other.
Example (plugin has been around since August 2007, for 1.8 to 2.0):

This is neat...just one potential problem in 1.8...If there is any bad html in your header...the course can take minutes to load as the server seems to be running at 100% memory usage.

Is the latest version compatible with 1.9?
This would potentially ease the issues faced by developers like myself, solving problems with older 1.9-upgraded-to-2.x code which aren't entirely bug-free and haven't been submitted to the new plugins database for whatever reason.
