Plugin: Forums - Continued Development/Enhancements or Just Maintenance Mode

Since the release of the Forums plugin, there have been numerous feature requests over the years (...and during such time, BuddyPress retired their Forum component [...and yes bbpress still maintains their group forums but that is neither here or there]).

Is there or are there future plans to develop such features? Or has this plug-in been shelved and now just in maintenance mode.

...Simple, light and straight-forward sounds great, but most of the time if dominantly tilted in that direction, usability is diminished and complexity is increased.

Thanks,
Brad
