I haven’t seen any development in Peercoin for ages, the official qt client STILL does not have a “unlock for proof of stake minting” option in the interface!

There’s no major functional updates for a long long time, what’s the excuse of not having a “unlock for minting” option in the interface of the official client? isn’t this the whole idea of having a Proof of Stake coin?

The official client is just not the latest and greatest. It is the most secure and stable and straight out of the hand of Sunnyking. Further updates of the official client are expected in v0.5. We don’t have a release date yet though. And we had recently a ssecond developer joining the core wallet development. So abandoned, don’t think so. Maybe a bit slower than the latest, flashiest altcoin where you will need to update the client every so many weeks because of all the bugs.
If you don’t want to wait any longer and want to go for the real Peercoin experience now, you should check out the Peerunity client v0.1. The V0.2 will be released soon. The v0.1 have been proven stable since the release. Check the relevant board (Peerunity Board) and threads for the latest feature sets.
No, in fact a second developer just recently joined. Use Peerunity if you want that minting button.
The official client is for high priority updates. It would be best to use Peerunity, our community client like others have suggested.
Hopefully it won’t be too much trouble for SK and Sigmike to include the button in v0.5 though.
quite the opposite there is quite a lot of dev in Peercoin, and peercoin related. SK has deliberately stated that he will do things well rather than rushed, as it is a long term store of value and design so that is paramount.
Nubits I am not sure about, however, 0.5 cold locked minitng and opt out centralized checkpointing is the one to watch
