Once 3.2.8 final is out the door, it will be stagnant. "Syzop" has a
fairly large slacker attitude, and is only interested in Unreal for the
money (oops, it doesn't make any for him anymore. especially not now
with InspIRCd).

As such, we can call Unreal dead now, barring some miracle -- but I
don't see this happening with next generation ircd picking up steam like
InspIRCd - which cater to that same market of IRC admin which would be
interested in Unreal.
