I've got Anwida soft dx reverb light installed with audacity 2.1.0 and can use
By default, effects are listed by name in 2.1.0, and it appears as L1V on the
effects menu. In the effects category of preferences there's an "effects in
menus are" combo box which allows you to change how effects are listed, eg
name, publisher and name, etc.

I just tried this. I think I did it before with the same result. I can see them
in the list but it says they're unavailable.

There was also a set of reverb plug-ins (I can't remember which ones right now
but they had this weird Japanese name before all the options listed in the
Effects menu) that completely disappeared when I updated to 2.10 and don't even
show up when the uninstalled plug-ins list appears.

If you go to
Edit->Preferences->Effects, there are two checkboxes above the OK button
that allow different options for rescanning your available effects, did you try

Also, I think I remember some talk of a new naming
convention in the new version of Audacity. I wonder if that could be the
problem... I don't know how to fix it.

Since updating to the latest version of Audacity, some
of my extra reverb plug-ins, well, all of them, actually, haven't been in my
Effects list. Most are still in the plug-ins folder in the ProgramFilesX86
section of my computer, but that doesn't seem to be making any difference. I
liked the reverbs that were generated by these effects and want them back, but
I'm guessing if they're not accessible in Audacity's menus any more, they're no
longer compattible. I had Freeverb and Anwida Soft, among others. I downloaded
them when the inbuilt Audacity reverb thing was only mono and I couldn't get it
to sound the way I wanted. Now I'm having similar issues with the current
because I can't make it sound like it's coming from a distance (or I just don't
know how to do that), or make the reverb more...reverby.
