Interesting !

It has stalled, mainly because the authors moved to other tasks, and 
also because the code base was considered as stable enough.

We have fixed a few issues in the current code, mainly because we needed 
some extensions (very few), but we now think that we need more. As the 
project has been forked here, we will most certainly try to review the 
full code and move for a 2.0 too.

May be you could consider injecting your modifications here at Apache ? 
We need this project to be alive and kicking, also having more exposure. 
Apache is probably the best way to get this exposure at this point.

Let's talk about that !
