Plugin does not work with current wordpress. Shame because it was great

I don’t know what happened when Zemanta went away, but I no longer receive relevant lists or tags. Some of the suggested links are so far off, I wonder where they’re getting their information! If an improvement doesn’t happen soon, I’ll have to find another plugin. Zemanta was one of my favorites; the new people have dropped to the bottom in a very short period of time.
