Unfortunately development slowed down and last year they finally decided to focus solely on developing/selling the engine instead of making the game. Now if only Braben would license the engine, then he could focus on art and gameplay.
Edit: Just saw they finally have a new update out. They are planning to do a kickstarter in Q1 2013, I'll probably back that instead of Elite 4.
