The same is for the IDE, there is no maintainer. No new features are
planned. We fix the bugs that we find major, but that is all.

And for FreeVision we try to fix the report (and reproducable) bugs. The
worst thing that users then could do is to switch back to old versions
without reporting the bugs. Because then the bugs are unknown and will
never be fixed.
