Freshmeat project not updated aymore?

The latest stable as of this writing is 0.6.32. Seems like no one from nginx updates it anymore.

Btw, for developers who want an Apache alternative on their local desktop computers, nginx are able to run along with PHP and MySQL based applications.

PHP runs in FastCGI mode because nginx doesn't support CGI.

This setup is tested under Windows Vista and XP.
