The product has mostly reached maturity in the present state, there is not
enough code changes any more to justify a monthly release.

That having been said, there a few ideas that i would like to implement to
improve the performance and speed of processing one being changing from
scanning the queue to a file monitoring based pickup instead which will 
immediately scan the message as soon as it is written to the MTA spool

Anyone with feature requests should file them to the Github issues.
