Development is currently in deep freeze, although we do
bug fixes whenever reported/found.

At some point, Linux-VServer will be obsolete and completely
replaced by mainline LXC plus various security frameworks.

There is already ...

Just the automatic wiki update is not working anymore and
I didn't bother to fix it yet ... and I forgot to update
the page manually :)

This always depends on the interrest of the community.

LXC seems to be 'good enough' for most folks working with
isolation nowadays, so the 'demand' has declined.

If there are enough folks interested in an update and/or
somebody is willing to sponsor development for a new
kernel branch, then I'm always available to do that.

Hope that clarifies,
