Don't be put off by the version number.  It's very stable and, for my  
purposes anyway, I've found TeXniscope to be the best pager overall  
for previewing LaTeX documents.  Source <-> preview sync in  
particular is very good.

The developer is in fact alive and well, but he simply feels the app  
is at a relatively stable point so he's focusing on other things.  He  
did mention to me in an email message that he wants to add some new  
features if he can find the time.  (A universal binary would be nice...)
