Bayi just did a bug-fix commit yesterday.
QuestGuru is another "EQL-like" mod like bEQL, but likely the most well done of them all. QuestGuru is active development, has a similar concept as bEQL (with a few more features), a working quest history, no taint, not many functional bugs historically that were not fixed soon after and it plays well with other addons (LightHeaded, MobMap, Mars Quest Organizer, etc.). Still hope bEQL continues to improve, though.
Thanks for the recommendation. (Bit naughty of you in the bEQL thread, but your cheek has made me happier.) Hooray!
