Looking at OpenTK, I notice some disturbing signs:
- The last news item was posted on December 31st, 2010
- The main forum gets about one post a day
- On SourceForge, the last nightly build was in March, and the last release was 2010.
Does OpenTK exist anymore, or is it abandonware now?
Edit: Some people have expressed concern at my use of "ambiguous" and "loaded terms" like "dead," "abandonware," and others.
What I'm asking is this: software projects comprise of many pieces:
- The actual software project (such as OpenTK)
- A group of people who maintain the software (project leads, core developers)
- Some vehicle by which users can find and consume the latest versions (such as releasing daily builds)
- A community (can I ask questions about it? Get answers?)
- Updates (are there new features? New releases? Active development? A roadmap?)
Some projects have all of these things. Most have a few. Some have nothing, other than maybe the actual software project itself.
Is OpenTK one of these? Because it seems like:
- The actual software project is stable
- The maintainers don't contribute to it anymore
- There are no more latest versions (daily builds), not since 2010 (2+ years)
- The community is very low-traffic (nobody is asking/answering questions, who is actually using this anyway?)
- There are no updates since 2010
