Status?

about Fraps Nov 2014

I was planning on buying a license for Fraps, but then I noticed that the last update is from February 2013, which makes me a bit uncertain. Does anybody know about the status and future of the project?

Not that I think the program is in dire need of any improvements or bugfixes. But almost two years without an update is a long time, especially for a program that used to be updated quite regularly (usually at least once a month, and never a gap longer than 6). Also, the last version number "3.5.99" looks like it was supposed to be the last release before a bigger update.

As the price is relatively high, I would hesitate a bit to register a software when maybe I'll soon no longer be able to get any support.

Very useful but has two problems as far as I am concerned. First, it splits files at 4 GB even on NTFS. Second, I wouldn't mind some compression options for those of us that would like to sacrifice a little CPU to decrease file sizes. Perhaps compression is a pipe dream even on a modern quad-core ... I don't know.
