That is the reason, yes. Often the project is considered complete by the 
author and so no updates are done. The problem with this is the graphic 
libraries are not complete and do keep changing and at some point 
applications will no longer run on the newer libs. We lost GCDMaster the 
same way. There has been really IMO, no good replacement for it either.

So the trouble is, "it works, whats to update?", tends to fail
