It has been very log since last release. Is this project is halted?
Please don't stop it.
I like Dev C++ very much, because it light weight and fast and simple.
I recommend it everyone who ask me for a C/C++ IDE.
for a halted project, it has a rather active community, also make sure to check out the download stats!
While this project's development has certainly stalled and is extremely unlikely to be continued, due to many alternatives being now available, the project itself is certainly far from dead at all!
Maybe this needs to be added to the FAQ.
