     79== Is Xinha under active development?  No updates for years?  What's going on? == 
     80 
     81Xinha is a tool made by the developers for their own use.   
     82 
     83It is used by thousands of websites in production systems all over the world and has been for many many years. 
     84 
     85Mostly it is used in administration type systems where the user's system is somewhat controlled, that is the developer can instruct the user "Use Chrome" or "Use Firefox" (or perhaps just "Don't Use IE") and as a result these more capable and cross platform browsers are better "work tested". 
     86 
     87Mostly the current trunk ( checkout with "svn co http://svn.xinha.org/trunk/ trunk" ) is what is used in even production systems. 
     88 
     89The short version is, that development happens when a developer has an itch they need to scratch, we don't "fix-what's-not-broke". 
     90 
     91There is no set schedule, and development of Xinha simply for the sake of developing Xinha doesn't happen much (we have bills to pay, if we don't have a direct need for something in one of our projects, it's not getting written). 
     92 
     93Xinha is open source, and we mean it, if you want to progress the development of Xinha in some way, please contact James Sleeman ( See [wiki:Developers Xinha Developers] ) and he will arrange for SVN commit and Trac management access.

    8096== How can I get Xinha? == 
     
    8298 
    8399== Have you got a forum? == 
    84 Yes, [http://www.xinha.org/punbb/ here it is].  Please don't post bug reports, feature requests or patches in the forum, use the [wiki:Tickets Ticket System] for that so we can track them more efficiently. 
     100 
     101We used to, but it fell into disuse years ago with nobody to keep on top of the spammers. 
     102 
     103If anybody would like the data, contact James Sleeman, he has it stashed away somewhere probably, it was a PunBB system.
