Avant abandoned???

Post by huggy59 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:25 am

There seems to be no additional development/bug fixes going on with Avant, except for the last few engine updates. Has Avant development stopped for good? Is it basically an abandoned project?

If so, it would be a great shame

A few months ago, I had a strange window / page appear that was completely unexpected
Something about how the author is now concentating on something else -
Avant is the greatest

Is someone at least looking after updating the engines?

Or even better: can we update the engines on our own for box FF and Chromium?

Thanks

It looks like yes, at least every now and then. For me, this is enough, as the current feature set of AB Ultimate is still very compelling and it is worth the effort.

Thanks
