No idea what Armin is doing at the present, apart from the fact I heard he is working on another project.
I've tried contacting him, but at this time he has so far not answered emails

I heard he's helping out with Firestorm, though I can't remember where I heard it and I certainly can't verify that it's accurate information.

Armin was recruited by the Firestorm team yes.
But, as I mentioned, he is also currently working on another project, the details of which I don't know, most likely a breadearner as we all must pay our bills and put food on the table.

To answer Mircea, and hi Mircea welcome back, Firestorm is now releasing 2 distinct versions of their viewer, 1 for SL, another without Havoc for OpenSim, this is the version Armin has been working on.
The Opensim version is recognised by the OS on the end of the name.

Uhhh, it's always Firestorm that gets all the attention :x Although I can't say it's a bad viewer, I don't like it and am always looking for a simple and good viewer-3 fork with grid selection support. Teapot was that, but it sounds like Firestorm is ruining it indirectly by taking away its main developer. His choice obviously, but it is upsetting that Firestorm is monopolizing third-party SL viewers. I hope those of us who dislike FS but also viewer 1 won't be eventually left in the dark.

Is there anyone else developing Teapot while the main dev is gone? If not, any change someone else might take over and either continue its development or fork their own viewer off Teapot (or make a similar one from Linden's)?

Armin is the only dev at Teapot, it is actually his research and test viewer, all his work from that usually goes into the other TPV's, I know kokua also uses parts from Teapot.
I have recently also tried the newest Kokua, sadly no where near ready for OpenSim yet, still very much a SL viewer.

I think the problem is that, whilst Armin used Teapot as his own testbed, he actually managed to produce one of the better TPVs out there (certainly on Linux systems). Less cluttered but as full featured as the best of the rest. I'd love him to go mainstream with teapot and sod the competition.

Can't fault him for not wanting the headache, tho....

If you like Teapot like I do, You should give Zen a try. They are very similar (IMO) and both include Armins Mumble/Whisper voice patch.

Is it based on viewer 3 too, and has HTML on prim and mesh support? If so I should totally give it a try.

Oh, and one great feature of Teapot is that it has a 64bit version... other viewers don't usually seem to, I hope this one has that too. I can run the 32bit one on my Linux machine fine but still prefer x64 if I have 64bit Linux :)

I think it is a V3 (looks pretty v3 to me) But I don't think Zena has done a 64bit or a Linux version.
