Is https://github.com/hMailServer-ComDevs/hmailserver supposed to get new features or is it inactive?

Hi Dravion, thank you for your important contribute to hmailserver.
Today I've updated my 5.6 installation to your 5.7 latest build.
I noticed that autobans priority on IP ranges list is now set to 100 instead of 20. It is correct? I can't set anymore a higher value to protect a specific IP against autoban... such my webmail.

Just upgraded my hmailserver 5.7.0 build 2441 to hMailServer 5.7.0 64-Bit (LTS) - June Release with LibreSSL 2.9.2. Seems this is the safest version at this point in time. Thank you to Dravion for your fine work. Hope you continue the development of this great mail server software. :)

Good evening
We use hmail 5.6.8-B2431 (32 bit) on MySql 5.7.x 64bit on our production server with few domains. Is it sure to upgrade to 5.7.0 64bit? May we encounter problems?
Thank you in advance.

Why would you like to upgrade to 64-bit if it is currently working?
Any 64bit build is either BETA or a unofficial...

There are Users which running this LibreSSL 64-Bit Version for Month in Production without Problems. In atleast one case its documented this LibreSSL 64-Bit Release works even more reliable then the official OpenSSL 1.0.2.x Releases.

Regarding official:
The last (unreleased) Github commits are dated from July
2018 and Feature updates was not seen for Years. 64-Bit builds are also not Beta because the Code is taken from the same Stable Codebase as 32-Bit builds.

If you have a big installation and hMailServer requires more than 2 GBytes RAM, 64-Bit builds are right now the only way to solve such Out of Memory Situations.

Ok, there will be no more LTS Releases in the future.

hMailServer 5.7 will be released with x64 Support and maybe LibreSSL or OpenSSL 1.1.x support, so there is no need to maintain this LTS
package. Instead of this, fixes and patches will contributed directly to the official development upstream code.

Martin only have an intention, but have no plan on when. The official 5.7 x64 could be years away.

There will be a "official" hMailServer 5.7 beta build when I've upgraded to latest OpenSSL, ditched x86 support and upgraded Boost which will happen next week. I have upgraded OpenSSL but need to change some code for Boost 1.70 to work. Removing the x86 support should be straight forward.

Keep in mind that the build referenced in this thread isn't "hMailServer 5.7.0". It's a fork of hMailServer which happens to have an unfortunate name (the same as hMailServer). When an official 5.7.0 is released, it won't have the same features as this fork.
