I installed VMWare, now I have a dedicated Windows with the Forrest Trunk
installed (forrest_new). My other machine has the older currently working
with windows version (forrest_old).

I have done some scenarios, and basically they are that on both the
forrest_old and forrest_new the conclusion is the same - plugins do not seem
to work on forrest_new whether generated originally from forrest_new or
forrest_old. 

forrest_old generated sites (including seed-basic and seed-sample) WILL work
on forrest_new (trunk) as long as ONLY the PDF plugin is enabled. ANY other
plugins will break forrest.

Not has time to test much further yet.
