            For all appearances, this project is dead.

            Last status-of-project post on their forum was done in 2008 and most "fixes" coming out now are small bits of code changes by users.

            Very unfortunate. This is one of the best (if not the best!) Movie indexing tools around. I've not found one that even comes close. Quite tempted to fork it and start on a rebuild.
