Open Conference System 2.3.6 outdated?

I have been tasked to install the software for an upcoming conference. However, looking at the download page I see that the last update happened in May 2014. As a webmaster, I can’t trust software that hasn’t been updated for 3 years. I currently look at it as a security incident waiting to happen.
Could somebody try to convince me otherwise?

Hi @feliz,

That is indeed the latest release. See this blog entry for our future plans for OCS. Meanwhile, OCS 2.x shares a large amount of code with OJS 2.x, and we do actively maintain it for security fixes etc.; there just haven’t been any since the last release. It should be safe to use but will feel a little outdated.
