Has PECompact been abandoned?

There's been no beta versions since 12-10-2012 and no releaseversions after 05-05-2010, according
to the all versions list.

It has not, and never will be, abandoned. At least while I live. That isn't to say we can guarantee any particular update or feature, but it's not going anywhere.

PECompact release version hasn't been updated in more than 8 years.

I hope to see an update to PECompact and PEBundle too. I love using both of these software and it would be unfortunate if they are really abandoned.

I know it's always been slow with releases but it's now been over 3 and a half years since the last update with no ETA on any future versions, which leads me to believe there aren't any coming. Does anyone have any more info? Sorry if this has been discussed before here.

Abuse of executable packers by malware authors made their use impractical due to false positives by security software. Licensing also got complicated due to a high fraud rate. It was untenable.
