Hi!
I wanted to make a question to the most veteran members:
Is 'The libGDN Project' still active or at least in any form of paused activity?

The libGDN Project Web Site:
http://libgdn.sourceforge.net/

 

And the most relevant, and discouraging result, found in this same forums:

https://www.gamedev.net/topic/255491-what-happened-to-libgdn/?hl=%20libgdn

I discovered it while in search for a good old library (MS-DOS driven preferably) and it surprised pleasantly me (Last Update is 2013, while Registered in 2002).

Furthermore, what is The libGDN Project exactly?    Because I understand The libGDN Project is any kind of libraries/APIs useful to game developing, but I'm not sure if it is really an engine (or equivalent), or at least it offers some tools

In any case, is it worth to try and develop anytihing using it?

Indeed, it was curiosity that drove me to ask, because The libGDN Project looks so old, but with a very deliberate purpose in its day and age.

So good to be provided with that kind of tools, but then came SDL and then SFML (the latter, in fact my choosed one, although recently been researching with the 4.2 version of Allegro)

 

My question was in the hope to be shed some light from somebody involved in the project back in the day...wether as developer or user. Are not there veterans?

The two primary developers haven't logged in to this site in something like ten years or more, unless they've created new accounts.
