Is there any progress/maintenance on kvblade?


I assume you are looking at what's available on sourceforge.net, which is aoetools-32?

Coraid bundles a newer version, aoetools-33, with their driver.

Look at Coraid's changelog --- there's certainly ongoing maintenance.

I haven't tried kvblade, which according to my understanding isn't super stable.  vblade has been working out great for me.
