The product's author, Scott R. Lemmon, unfortunately has passed away but support for The Proxomitron continues through its large enthusiast following. This is evident from the main download site which offers several versions of the product including the last version Scott released before his death. The site also has setup instructions, resource links, and lists of sites where you can test whether the product is working.
