I have been using this plugin for many years, but on a recent upgrade, it started breaking functionality including uploading images and my other plugin subscribe2. Deactivating this plugin let subscribe2 start working again, and also allowed me to upload images. I would conclude that it is no longer maintained, as others have done.
