This hasn't seen a new tag since 1.60, two years ago. It looks like they are still active. Do you have an idea when the next release will be?

@DataDrake Unlikely. It is active but like you said, they gave up on making tagged releases a while ago.

It doesn't look like other distros are packaging it and despite their git activity, not having git tags makes this a nightmare to update.
