He’s uploaded a beta of his own 2.0 version on the original site.
On the one hand, he’s fixed a few things that I couldn’t, including the Desktop bar. Plus the icons have a fresh coat of paint, and the options dialog (while still a little messy) appears to have been redesigned. However, a lot of other stuff is broken.
I don’t know what this means for me. Should our versions merge? Would he even agree to that? Should I just keep going and fork the project? That Quizo released this without so much as a cursory email to me is pretty upsetting. I have to wonder if he’s mad at me for taking over.
To top it off, this happened at the worst possible time for me; I’m leaving for a trip to France in two days to attend an academic conference. And now here I am with my head spinning off. I really just don’t have time to deal with this right now. I guess all I can do for now is wait to see how things play out while I’m away, and see if I can get any kind of communication going with Quizo.
EDIT: Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments. Quizo did send me an email and it looks like everything will work out. I’ll post the full details when I return from my trip. Au revoir!
