For the 188.8.131.52 release, the new policy cache feature will be available as a non-supported technology preview.
There is a section at the end of https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mEUZQ1nYm0wkcOQCbUBa8t4y7LdpE9CszGPyk2n5xZg/edit which contains details about what we think would need to go into the docs.

Hi edwardb and Nicholas James - what are the differences between this new feature, and the existing WPA policy cache, as described here: https://backstage.forgerock.com/docs/openam-web-policy-agents/5.5/web-agents-guide/#web-agent-caching-capabilities
How will these two work alongside each other? Is the new feature a replacement of the documented one? Can/should they be used in unison?
Any and all info appreciated.

The appendix in https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mEUZQ1nYm0wkcOQCbUBa8t4y7LdpE9CszGPyk2n5xZg/edit has details about how this cache is different to the existing WPA policy cache.
The feature is either switched off or on. If it is on then the way the policy cache works will change so that it behaves as described in https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mEUZQ1nYm0wkcOQCbUBa8t4y7LdpE9CszGPyk2n5xZg/edit.
From what I understand. https://backstage.forgerock.com/docs/openam-web-policy-agents/5.5/web-agents-guide/#web-agent-caching-capabilities - The session cache should not be affected and the described features such as com.sun.identity.agents.config.policy.cache.polling.interval should still work as described. Is this correct Nicholas James

Yes its correct.
