Yes, MOST WA 2.xx plug-ins work with WA 5.xx. You must have seen the WA 2.xx = WA 5.xx with bug fixes and new features.
(The ones that don't are usually for very specific things (Languages packs and the such))

As for the Tara thingamabob, I don't know, I don't use it:

- Real Audio and Video (with no extra plugins)
Play Real Media format files in Winamp with no extra plug-ins. If you have Real One or Real Player already and hate it, feel free to uninstall it first, it will no longer be needed. First install Real Alternative. Second add the proper extensions to the DirectShow decoder:
Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plugins > Input > Double Click "Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder..." > add ";RA;RM" (no quotes) to the end of the extension list.
Note: this does not work for .RAM playlist files or rstp:// streams, use the Tara plugin instead (just remove ra & rm from the extension list in tara.ini).
Or just use the Tara plugin for ALL Real formats instead.

That way it shouldn't revert back to not FS if you use the in_dshow plugin.
