I think you'll find the major reason is contained in the news story that marcel has linked on his home page.

The headline is "Patent War - Microsoft Sues Andriod Retailers". The net result is his discontinuation of anything Windows based completely (Primo and a large integer package he had avilable...)

I have been very successful installing and running the Linux version in VirtualBox. In fact, the Linux version single-threaded in vbox is faster than the native Win32 version from 2010 on the same machine....and it really tears up the PRPs when run with six threads!
