Hey, I've just stumbled upon this announcement by the nvALT2 (also Marked 2 etc.) guy Brett Terpstra: https://brettterpstra.com/2019/04/10/codename-nvultra/
Apparently he's teaming up with Fletcher Penney (the developer of Multi Markdown Composer) to revive the project. I don't know what the direction is they're taking, but basically having two parallel development forks I anticipate one of the projects possibly being outdone. Given how well the original nvALT was conceived, this might be bad news for TheArchive. Maybe you could bring your expertise into the mix? (I'm not affiliated with the project.)
