It looks to me like Andy has new interests.

It does look like CB is no longer a priority for Andy.
My 2¢

Win11, CB(1.0)rc 1(64 bit) Mach3, ESS, G540, 4th Axis, Endurance Laser.

I’m not a member of twitter, so saw a few posts and then was asked to log in or sign up.
I figure CB was Andy’s day job for years, and the robots are fun for him, me too.
I wonder if he meets up with Mat Denton or James Bruton who both visit shows like this.

The build date on my installed 64bit CamBam v1.0 is 25th March 2020, so tomorrow it will have been four years since the last update.

It's not all bad because the software still works as well as it did four years ago but it would have been nice to get some bugs fixed.

Yep, but maybe not really abnormal ... the last version of the 0.98 is dated of september 2015, so five years between last .098 and last 1.0  ::)

Perhaps, but there was a 1.0 BETA out for a long time...  before it became the official non-beta release. 
Getting started on CNC?  In or passing through my area?
If I have the time I'll be glad to show you a little in my shop.
