Comment by mistaecko
about Archimedes Jun 2011

Both the official website and the sourceforge website show only little activity. A forum question on the status of the project from 1-Jan-2011 has not been answered so far. The latest minor release dates back to mid-2010, the latest major release to mid-2009 (or before).

The download statistic still show quite an activity, however, with up to 200 downloads a day: http://sourceforge.net/project/stats/detail.php?group_id=143642&ugn=arquimedes&type=prdownload

And even though there seems to be no ongoing development, the application might still be usable.
