2.5.3 is waiting for them to post the announcement.  It's effectively been
released already, but I'm holding sending the announcement out until
they've had a chance to update the web page.

There isn't a lot of development activity, although Julien still finds
time to work on it from time to time.  It's mostly that people have
largely stopped using Usenet entirely, and as a result the demands on a
news server have decreased quite a bit.

    Please send questions to the list rather than mailing me directly.
