There was a large period of time (just over a year) during which the 2.x series was being developed outside of the stable 1.8 series... which some people misinterpreted as "slow development" or project abandonment. I'll refrain from commenting on which direction E17 is from E16. :D
Regardless... progress has not slowed. Quite the opposite. Enjoy.
