And I'm back! I was forced to go inactive 4 months ago
due to a severe wrist issue. Now, after surgery and 3 months of recovery, I'm starting to get back on track again and I've resumed my position as Unreal3* maintainer in the UnrealIRCd team.
Some major changes have happened when I was away, such as the new focus on Unreal4* (based on inspircd). It's a drastic move, with a lot of work to do (many Unreal-features needed to be implemented, other things changed to make it Unreal'ish, lot of testing and debugging to make it a good quality ircd), but once completed and fully stabilized I believe it will be a good next-generation ircd which should give us enough flexibility for the next -many- years. It's also written in C++ and is less spaghetti code than Unreal3, which means more coders involved, which again turns out in faster development and hopefully less bugs.
Unreal3.2*, as Stskeeps has said, will continue to exist for quite a while. It will mostly be a bugfix-only branch (with a couple of new features, sorry.. can't resist...). There will be plenty of overlap between Unreal4 stable release and the discontinuing of Unreal3, there'll be no rush.
Finally, I'd like to use this opportunity to thank everyone who contacted me to wish me well, thanks a lot for your support!
