[R] Deducer future?

I have been using Deducer for the past year for my very basic 100-level introductory statistics classes for students from other disciplines. I really have liked using it for this specific purpose (takes me out of JMP!). However, over the past few months, issues have started cropping up with (some, not all) Windows 7 machines (which I am personally not very familiar with). Most of these problems are cleared when I manually and individually install all the required packages one by one. However, this is tedious to do for me, an instructor, for each and every student, and also means that the main appeal of Deducer: one-click install and GUI is lost. 

I have also noticed that Deducer's webpage mentions that it works on R 2.10.0 or greater. However, it is not clear if this project is maintained or not, so therefore, before I invest more time in using this for teaching, I was wondering if the software is being maintained and developed.

I would like to say that Deducer works as advertised and no hiccups on Fedora 20 Linux for R 3.1.2.

Many thanks and best wishes,
