That would have been my next question. But I have heared things like this from
other projects (e.g. maven plugins) and I waited and waited and finally a year
passed. Besides I was a little confused that the latest release is about 2,5
years old. That means something odd has happend to the community in that time.

For my personal needs it suites well if I can use a nightly build version but
for real usage I tend to use an official version.
Good luck to all POI activists for the next release...
