Contrary to what it may look like 3DMLW is not dead and development is still ongoing. Version 1 is stable and has received some maintenace fixes, but under the cover of the slightly long radio silence we've been quite busy and done a complete redesign and rewrite of the platform. A more modular approach has been taken with switchable engines and a plethora of new features have been added. There's still a bit to be done before prime time, but we've set up a wiki (Links section) to publish news, documenation, guides and preview binaries. Head on over and have a look around!
