I noticed there has not been an update in over seven months. Is this a dead project? If so that is sad. I was excited about this engine/framework.
I've been on a bit of a hiatus from officially working on the project because I got completely overwhelmed with the scope of the work that had to be done and got busy with some other projects on top of it.
For the past few months though, I have been thinking a lot about how to reduce the scope and reorganize the project in a way that is manageable and fun for me to work on and prototyping a new, simplified and more streamlined version of the codebase.
So the answer to your question is no, it's not dead, but most likely I will end up re-starting the project with the codebase that I have been working on privately, one that is heavily based on the current one, but rewritten from scratch to be faster and more usable.
