Although I'm working on the next release of Hiawatha, I think I ran out of ideas of new features to implement in Hiawatha. I believe Hiawatha has everything a modern webserver needs. The list of features that Apache has is much longer than Hiawatha's feature list, but for many of them counts that I strongly believe such feature should be implemented in a web application instead of a webserver.
Another reason to give Hiawatha less priority in my life is that after many years of trying to make Hiawatha more known, I found out that people simply stick to the webserver they know. No matter if that webserver is the best choice for what they need. I will keep on developing Hiawatha, but I will mainly focus on features that I and some friends of mine want in Hiawatha.
After 7.2 has been released, I will be more focussing on another project of mine: the Banshee PHP framework. I'm working on new features and writing some proper documentation. I'm also thinking about making a dedicated website for Banshee.
