IPython1 has become a bit more ambitious after that was written, but
the feature parity is still the target. It's just not there yet, and
the dependencies will probably still be there.

It's still being maintained, most of the work is done by yours truly
(which has been the situation for 2 years already) . We are pretty
much ready to release 0.8.3 when the sphinx doc creation works
properly with pdf (or we work around the bug).

There are no ambitious future plans, apart from getting bugs fixed,
but that doesn't mean 0.8.3 will not have lots of new features ;-)

If you don't care about the docs and want new ipython0, get it from
launchpad (bzr branch lp:ipython)
