DayZ Mod is still testing Release 1.9.0. It will come out when its done. Everyone is a volunteer doing this on their own time. Highlights will include new building interiors, new weapons/configs, new vehicles (hopefully) and other fixes.
Although the pop is up and down, TDR isn’t going anywhere. 2017 has been a good year and looking forward to 2018! I haven’t had the time to work on it lately, but I have dusted off the mission code and started working on a new one. Unless I hear the need for other things, that will be my focus for a while.
Finally, as much as the mod is getting older and SA is (like always) almost there, I’ve found myself helping more people work on their own server by using my guide.
