It's been a while since I last posted, and I thought now would be a good time to update the project status.
Facsimile is not dead, merely having a nice, long nap. I changed jobs around six months ago and my new employer has monopolized my free time, effectively halting Facsimile development. This is not a permanent state of affairs and I hope to resume work on the project shortly.
As always, if you'd like to participate in the project, please feel free to get in touch via the contact page.
