Does anyone know of this program is update and maintained?

This tool would be a great way to make SimuTrans easy to install and update.

It doesn't seems that this tool is quiet actual and I don't think that this tool would work quiet well.
It isn't allowed to make direct downloads to SF.NET I think, so all files has to been hosted on a second server, and I don't think that there is such a big use of an installer! Simutrans is so easy to install, a installer would make it more difficult and would be extra work.

An offline installer from Frank is aviable, which does work quiet well and exists for every well known pak sets.

Might be easy for you, but many new users like SimuSetup, there are still many downloads!

In fact I started SimuSetup in 2005. At that time simutrans releases where frequently, as nightlies didn't exist, thus offline setups where not practicable.
