the resolution timetable remains unclear:

"goatpig commented 5 days ago

@ABISprotocol I don't control bitcoinarmory.com, that belongs to ATI. Their current policy (I believe) with that domain is to offer binaries for the code they fully own, i.e. 0.93.x versions of Armory.

You could say the current state of affairs is that ATI tolerates my fork (and me using their trademark), but have yet to make a definitive move in either embracing it or opposing it (in which case I'd have to rebrand)."

    Blockchain.info is an online wallet and just like any other online wallet shouldn't be used to store a large amount or for long term purposes. For ease of usage and small amounts their wallet is fine. The entire Bitcoin landscape has become very political and some services are demonized or removed based on their stance on the infamous blocksize debate.
