Hopefully Mojang didn't change the code too much. Or else we can expect the new Forge update in like a year
The dude behind Forge has probably also lost motivation because everyone just stays on 1.7.10. Hopefully 1.9 will do better than 1.8 in the terms of mods.
I hope so too, but if you update it to 1.8 at least, that will be good enough.
Nice, given how VoxelMap and Mapwriter both don't save map progress when the game crashes and JourneyMap, even though it does, is a huge resource hog, I hope this mod has an option to save the cache periodically. Plus it's always good to have more options.
Can't wait until the full release to try it out in 1.7.10.
