Hi Dominik,

I'm afraid it's unlikely (in my opinion) that any further development 
will be done on that tool.

What I'd suggest is to look for a programmer-oriented text editor or IDE 
that can be configured to conveniently run arbitrary tools command-line 
tools (e.g. from a "Build" menu or similar), and perhaps also has 
configurable syntax coloring features that can be set up to recognize 
the TECkit keywords, etc.
