Active development is ongoing for the 2.x version. Once there is a stable release for both Drupal 6 & 7, development of new features will be on the 7.x-2.x branch, and an effort will be made to backport them to the 6.x-2.x branch. The old 1.x versions of this module are still available from git if you really need them.
