So, is the Sapidlib/Lpuni project dead? No, it isn't - I've just been busy the last three months at a new job. However, what I find exciting is that it seems other people have continued to hack away at things (whereas everything seemed to drop whenever I took a break for whatever reason in the past). Although I'm going to be super busy this month (I have an initial product launch later this month), I do believe I'll have some spare time to get back into the swing of things again including merging in some exciting new stuff into the main development branch.
If you're interested in getting involved, give me a shout and I can give you a hand.
