Why dont you continue it if you are unhappy with the timeline/progress ;) You are more than qualified to do so and have the time. Right now I suspect lexikos wouldnt mind very much, since his motivation seem to be all time low (or other stuff has happened in his life that makes continued development less prioritized). So fire away just me :D

Hi zcooler,

"Why don't you continue ..." is not an answer to my question. Also, especially you should know that I'm not able to do it.

HotKeyIt continues to develop AHK_H v2:

Lexikos was active on github 21 days ago responding to Issues, and merged a bugfix from HotKeyIt last month:

Yes, im aware of your feelings on the subject and the only person abled to answer your question is lexikos himself of course. I dont know what the silence of lexikos stands for. Just wanted to say it might be plausible he is ready to drop the whole thing, but anguishes about dropping/annunciate "the bomb", which, if there is going to be a v2, requires other highly skilled developers taking over (there isnt many of you in here). Nice to see nnnik and HotKeyIt are working proactively in case of previously described scenario becomes reality :)

I don't know why everybody who posted an answer as yet did it. For me, these answers seems to be like techniques for Riding a Dead Horse

Do you see any results?

We just need more than a few people. It's a lot of code and I haven't understood a lot of it yet - that being said I haven't spend a lot of time on this matter since my spare time just vanished.
I feel that we should get more people to actively develop AHK that is if we want to make AHK a long lasting product that we all can enjoy and be content with.

you might want to raise a GitHub Issue in the AHK_L repo. lexikos just responded there yesterday

nah...forget about enforcing answers when there is no monetary investment done. It just doesnt work that way if you are doing things as a hobby and on your spare time. That goes for lexikos and HotKeyIt as well. Progress comes when motivation is high..simple as that. It is just as hard getting these kind of answers from paid software developers...so it might be a "dead horse" you wanna dismount, but I wouldnt bet on it. Time will tell.

zcooler there are several people that would be willing to continue AHK if Lexikos were to stop developing it.
AHk definitively is anything but a dead horse.

Where are those willing people now? Is something hindering them from doing anything? Not that I think they better would, I'm curious what you mean.
