Please understand that when you look at the report for ANY plugin, WordPress does not actually say the plugin is not compatible, it says it has not been tested with the latest version of WP.

WP has really increased the rate it is releasing new point versions, and the VAST majority (probably 99+%) of plugins that haven’t received a very recent update will still work perfectly with WP – but will trigger the “not tested” message anyway.

I think it is a conscious effort on the part of WordPress to coerce plugin authors to update their plugins to say they are tested with the latest WP. It can be a total pain to do that, and scares people away from perfectly good plugins that are simple and stable and don’t really need updating. Often the authors have moved on, or just don’t get around to the updating.
