Hello all.

While browsing to find a suitable .NET wrapper for Scintilla, I stumbled upon ScintillaNET. Actually, it seems to be THE .NET wrapper.

However, activity seems a little down on the project. Version 2.2 is almost a year and a half old, the latest post in a discussion about a potential version 3 by jacobslusser dates from almost a year ago and the last checkin by ChrisRickard dates from almost 6 months ago.

Here are a few questions for you:

  • What version of Scintilla is 2.2 based on? (That would be a good one for the FAQ)
  • Is this project dead?
    • If not, do you have a plan to release a newer version within a few months?
      • If so, based on which Scintilla version? (You probably know many interesting changes took place in Scintilla v2.20, incidentally)
  • Do you guys need a hand?

I don't think it's dead but it's pretty inactive at the moment. Also, I think version 2.2 uses version 1.7.6 of Scintilla, check by downloading the file which contains the SciLexer.dll file with it.
