If you create this registry key (note: key, not value), it should start
working again:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ColumnHandlers\{30351349-7B7D-4FCC-81B4-1E394CA267EB}

I don't know if the change was intentional but when I looked at the
installer scripts in svn they still looked like they were supposed to
create the key, so maybe something is failing in the installer before that
point. (Or maybe I just missed a detail and the new installer is
functioning as intended.)

Adding that key by hand made the columns work again for me when testing in
Windows 7 x64 (using a file manager that still supports IColumnHandler on
Win7, not Windows Explorer).
