Cppunit-1.13.0 released

It is obviously a fork. 

The last SourceForge commit to the post 1.12 trunk was in June 2012 (two weeks ago); the last prior commit was in 2009.  

The SourceForge project changed to Canonical Launchpad and initiated cppunit 2.x development.  The 2.x line has been idle since 2009. 

The SourceForge project pages are accessible.  
Project Wiki: <http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/cppunit/index.php?title=Main_Page>.
CPP Unit 2 on Launchpad: <https://launchpad.net/cppunit2>
SourceForge project: <http://sourceforge.net/projects/cppunit/>

It is probably safe to claim 1.13+ although making a clean fork would have been better than claim-jumping, however inactive the previous line is.

Hello Andreas,

If you call taking over a dead project forking then we did it. The old
upstream project did not commit any code for around 3 or 4 years and
did not respond to bug reports or comments on the mailing list for a
long time. We were already providing a set of patches for our internal
cppunit and are one of the biggest open source consumers of cppunit.
