Yes it is still alive. the lkast days i was working nearly every day on it.
the only problem at the moment is that it is very deeply customized to a modiefied wcms verison although i think one should be able to make it more compatible again. anyways i will finish it first.
For you information: this is not a replacement for a pro forum tool, bt it has some basic features
editing (admins cann edit and delete all)
pagination of topics
send mail to all forum users when creating a topic
send mail to all forum users when creating a reply (can be limited to a certain group but not yet to only those who posted in that topic)
some security related issues (no more forum switching possible via url forum ID changing)
Anyways if someone has a bridge to use a normal forum, this might definitely be the better solution
