the tweet from 3 days ago not good enough?

I think that some anxiety is justified.

However much we are grateful for MrAlex's fine work and however much we may recognise the Cyprus' situation and possibly personal troubles that he may be experiencing (or not!), the dearth of information from him and the long interval to an update would make anyone doubtful as to the likelihood of this project going forward.

To say that he has "computer issues" strikes me as somewhat disingenious. Mr Alex has been posting elsewhere on this site so an update from him, even one which is negative to our hope would be polite and stop the sort of comment I am making now.

I completely agree. We all don't want to make these kind of comments but it seems inevitable if even a small update (whether positive or negative) in this very thread is not done.

If MrAlex releases waterfox 20 or 21 or 22 etc, that'd be great

If not, it'd be a shame - but I wont be anxious, or expect an update, or make accusations about his character


but that's just me.

nothing is forever.

i am grateful for mr. alex's work freely given over the last few years, and if he is having trouble continuing at the moment, i am not going to whine about it.

it's not like y'all are paying for waterfox. and it's not like the current issue doesn't work any more. it does.

stop looking the gift horse in the mouth.

if he gets around to issuing a new version that will be great, if not, that's OK too. that's life.

Exactly. Which is why we have to accept that the project is close to dead. I myself am not complaining, I'm just accepting the fact that the development of WF is not what it used to be.

My sentiments exactly.

I actually switched to Waterfox because Nightly had been stopped by Mozilla.

I kept Waterfox because it seemed to be a lot less "beta" and worked just a great, if not better.

But now Waterfox is lagging really far behind. It's rare to see updates and when they are, they are really late.

I'm not complaining. Whatever the reason for this, I don't care and I won't whine.
Waterfox was price and problem free.

Fantastic project and I thank Mr. Alex.

But Nightly (x64) was restarted by Mozilla.
So for now I will be moving back to it.

If this project gets restarted, I might just have to switch back.

I do too, love his work that is. His browser is always the cleanest and most user friendly and I'll keep sticking with it until I know he doesn't want to go on anymore triggerhappysmiley.png
