Yes all of the regular plugins are available now in MS4W 3.0.1, but if 
you want to use the plugins with MapServer 6.0.0 they will be available 
in the MS4W release following the MapServer 6.0.0 release.

The plugins are not broken, they are just not part of the MS4W upgrade 
package.  If you wish to test MapServer 6.0.0 please use one of the 
supported formats in the upgrade package.  You can check for available 
formats through the 'ogrinfo --formats' and 'gdalinfo --formats' commands.

Thank you for using the MS4W product (almost 8 years old!  can anyone 
imagine how many MS4W installs are out there now?!)  Thank you to all 
that have supported its development throughout the years.
