Well, the fact is: We are NOT dead! :)
We gave ourselves a couple weeks vacations on december which were enlarged by our lack of time. We should be restarting to work this week and I'll try to release an unstable version this weekend.
It should, however, take us a few more weeks to release anything stable. We are passing through a major change in our platform.
We are migrating from SWT platform (where we handled all the windows and events and class loading) to an RCP platform (that handles all this to provide extensibility via plugins). This is taking quite some time because it requires that we reorganize and move about 50% of Archimedes.
The advantage we will get from this migration is to provide an API to develop powerfull plugins for Archimedes. We expect this to accelerate Archimedes' development since people can just develop any plugin they like and make it available here or somewhere else.
Therefore, we ask that you, please, keep waiting a bit more and keep sending us feedback about the problems you find so that we keep improving the software.
