The future of SFU is very unclear. My understanding is that it will not
be developed any further, although it will continue to be supported as legacy

For more information, see any of the myriad articles on the subject such

I have no problem paying for vendor support when the situation warrants
it, but in my opinion fixing a minor case of DLL hell is not such a

I'll be sure to let you know if I come up with any additional
information, but for now I am back to work :)
