BlurredD, creator of JJ2+, has released its source code to a team of planners and developers so that it can continue to be developed, even though he no longer personally has the free time to do so. The project is no longer dead; I however have no estimates to offer of when the next release will occur or what it will focus on, since we are still in the early exploratory stages, in terms of both working with the code itself and determining the structure and goals of the effort.
Even as we sit in happy anticipation of new features and bug fixes and stuff, a tremendous amount of thanks is due to blur for all his hard work in all the previous versions of JJ2+ — all but single-handedly extending the lifetime of JJ2’s multiplayer — laying the groundwork for future changes to be made, and of course being able to recognize his inability to continue development and then giving his code base into other hands. I know it can be awfully difficult to turn over the reins to something you’ve worked hard on, and blur deserves our fullest admiration and gratitude on all counts.
tl;dr: JJ2+ is not dead. JJ2 itself is not dead. Don’t go anywhere.
