xplanner - is it alive???

So, I'm playing around with xplanner these days - actually using it to structure my work on my timetracking software which I need for the business I'm just about to start.

Xplanner is nice, but I have some serious doubts. It didn't see a release since more than two years, consequently (I guess it's because of this) it doesn't run on current java VM's. So, I really wonder if this project has a future. Strange enough, in the Subversion, there seem to be quite some commits - but why does a team that is constantly working on a software not decide to make some release at some point?

Waiting for the answers to my questions on the xplenner devel mailing list...
