SWF Tools development is going to get started again! Sorry it's been a while since any issues got fixed, and that there's not a SWF Tools 7 (yet!). I can't promise any dates yet, but it will happen.
I support (or try to support) SWF Tools as a hobby, and 2010 was a long and difficult year for my family so I simply didn't have the time or focus to look after it. But things are good now and I've got time for SWF Tools again.
It's going to take a while to get back up to speed with SWF Tools 6 (and finally make an official release), and I'll need to catch up with Drupal 7 before starting on SWF Tools 7.
But in the meantime, thanks to everyone who uses SWF Tools, and to those who have posted support in the issue queue.
Like I said, I can't promise when things will happen - life is good now, but still very busy!
