For anyone wondering: Yes, we are still alive and yes, Skirmish! is still in development. We are still implementing features into the new build. Also: Bugfixing. Although it is taking longer than expected, we need the software to be bug-free before we want to add more features so we don't run into problems later on.
Since bugfixing is hardly worth mentioning as news (and I am also about to finish my degree), it has been rather quiet on the news front lately. We promise there will be more news more frequently once new features are implemented or we have some other news to share other than bugfixing.
