Apparmor, Still Good?

Hi All,

I've just had a look at apparmor today, played with it a little etc and it looks pretty cool.

Just wondering if I should take the time to set-up or should I look more deeply into SELinux/Something else?

To me this product looks great and is so easy to configure. How can it loose? I see that Novell Laid off the team in 2007 but a couple of them vowed to continue active development.. anyone know if this active development is continuing? I'm just surprised I guess that i can't find a website to get all the information, there;'s still some stuff on Novell's site but why not an or something to see latest stable releases bug tracking data etc etc.

Is it dead in the water?

Wikipedia has a few words about apparmor. SELinux serves me pretty well, and I find it transparent for my needs and my network. When it was new it was a little cumbersome, but now it rarely (never say never) causes any difficulty.
