The Linklist (sk_linklist) wasn't maintained for some time. But Sebastian Kurfürst committed it in 2011 to Heiko Westermann, who will do further development for this extension.
Thanks to Sebastian at that point!
In the last weeks the linklist was updated in aspects of security and vaorious tasks and fixes. Some more updates and (small) feature additions are planned for the next time.
Ideas, suggestions and bug reports are welcome and can be supplied in the TYPO3-Forge.
