The lack of updates had a reason and has to do with the improved General Data Protection Regulation law, taking effect during May 2018 in the European Union. It took us a while, but data protection should be a lot better. We run on HTTPS now, got rid of Google Analytics, decreased external calls to a minimum (and trying to decrease further!). This all should result in a better privacy for every visitor here. Please keep in mind this is a non-profit hobby project and not a professional service, still your privacy is important to us.
