It's definitely not abandonware. I wouldn't necessarily even say it 
lacks a maintainer. A number of people have stepped up to do minor 
maintenance, and if major needs cropped up, I'd sit down and do the work.

We keep it working with the latest release of Sword and do releases with 
every utilities release for Win32. (Linux users get it via packages, and 
those are also up to date.)

I take David's point on the need for updating the webpage, though. It 
remains the only way to learn about some of the more exotic derivatives 
of diatheke (like the OCX).
