[OpenLayers-Users] Caching alternatives for Mapserver?

We've a number of WMS sites, serving a number of shapefiles via MapServer.
Performance on the more complicated maps is adequate, at best.
Some years ago, we'd been using KaMap to provide a layer of caching over MapServer. KaMap is a php script that uses mapserver to generate tiles that are written to a disk cache, and it integrates with OpenLayers fairly well.
But MapServer has moved on, in the last few years, and so has OpenLayers. KaMap hasn't been updated since 2006. It doesn't work with MapServer 5.6+ out-of-the-box, and before I spend much time trying to hack it into some shape that will work, I thought I'd ask:
What other alternatives are there for serving shapefiles, that provide caching on the server side, that work well with OpenLayers on the client?
