The software still works as described on the website. Please tell us where 
it's "out of date". Old doesn't mean inaccurate.

This is not Ubuntu, Fedora or Gnome. I didn't take the opportunity to 
deliberately break it by rewriting half of it this year.

With only me developing at the moment in my very limited spare time, we 
don't have the resources to make a meaningful release every year. So if 
you want more than one release per year, you'd better look elsewhere.

I removed the unreleased Windows client from the website because it was 
not released due to test failures, so that problem at least should be 
fixed now.

Cheers, Chris.
