Development has been largely frozen at least since March in anticipation of the next alpha (A23), which was released in May. A quick re-release was announced but so far has failed to materialize. It's now September and as far as I'm aware development is still largely frozen.

Between the release of A22 (July 2017) and A23 (May 2018) there were c. 2000 commits, i.e. about 200 per month. Between the release of A23 (May) and now (September) there have been 56 commits, i.e. only 14 per month. This is getting increasingly worrisome.

Just my 2 cents. The main issue which held back the release even after all the bugs got fixed was GDPR. And it still is. And AFAIK, there isnt any lawyer here. It took a while to write a patch and even longer to review it. Since its a legal thing and GDPR is quite complex it is neither easy to understand let alone review. And unfortunately it coincided with vacation season, so theres that as well.

The lack of progress is also due to not working on A24 development until WFG is gdpr compliant.

Just as smiley said, the big issue was GDPR and the bad timing with holidays. It was difficult to work around an issue that needed an expertise nobody had at first. But we're getting there, and we fixed more things than we originally planned in the re-release. Thanks for your patience :)
