Hi Anton:

AG2 is definitely unmaintained, both internally (no recent releases, no 
bug fixes) and with respect to advancing platforms (no new builds in 
quite some time).

AG3 is the way forward.  It is well supported, performs better and, in 
fact, Nathan Gardiner (HitLabNZ) updated the all-in-one installer for 
AG3 and Chris Lewis (vuw.ac.nz) contributed code to the current beta 
release.  AG3 has far better support for non-multicast installations, too.

If you have any questions about moving to AG3, let me know.
