Email for help with MPI no longer works.

Here's where to discuss using Stéphane Leys' very well done alternative runtime editor. If you're a control freak at runtime you have to check this out!

Email for help with MPI no longer works.

I have found that the resource module in MPI no longer is working. I went to the web site, and used the email listed there for contact. Message came back as undeliverable. So looks like this software has been abandoned. Bummer.

I last heard from Stéphane in Feb 2013 and he told me he'd stopped developing for SC a couple years earlier.

Too bad. Nice software and I am used to it. Way it goes sometimes though.

While I do understand that sometimes things get dropped/stopped, it's just bad form to leave users hanging. From all appearances the MPI website still looks active and gives no hint that it's a dead extension.

I'll miss MPI a lot, wish it could be open-sourced or something if Stéphane couldn't go forward with it. (it would be a great way to extend the given editing environment, imho)

I quite agree. It is especially confusing when the website looks still active but is not. Careless.

Umm, when visiting the website (http://modulopi.pagesperso-orange.fr), how does one classify this website as "active"? The fact that it exists does not mean it is active. The last update is stated to have been in 2010 — that should be a strong hint that it isn't. So I have to ask… what are you guys smokin'? :? :?

There used to be a previous alternate RTE called Tangerine that was also very very nice. That disappeared. No open source. I think that's the precedent.

Software it seems mostly has a finite lifespan. Users are always left hanging. It is the circle of life. Embrace it.

Yes, you are right. I assumed it was active because the site still there with suggested contact link.
I will embrace it...reluctantly.
