Date of Website
« on: 4 April 2018, 13:49:36 »
One little suggestion:

Your website available on http://imaginglib.sourceforge.net/ indicates that the project has not been continued since 2012.

I would update the date to 2018, otherwise users would think that the project is dead.

Even if it was last updated in 2012, this library is so solid and productive it could well have no updates for years :)
 
I would however suggest moving repo to github to attract more users and exposure.

Yes, of course! That is exactly what I also think. It's a great library!

I thought about the people that are seeing the page for the first time. And they could be discouraged from using the great lib because they thing that there is nobody working on it anymore. If there is stated a current date, they would not think so.

At the top of the page http://imaginglib.sourceforge.net/ there is also stated:

Quote
Get the latest source code from Mercurial repository. Latest release version is 0.26.4 released on 12th October 2009. Get the library package in 7z or ZIP format: Imaging.7z | Imaging.ZIP.

This implies that the project has not been updated since 2009, which is not true. That can also discourage new users which would be very pity.
