Ubuntu Tweak Will No Longer Be Developed

Comes as a very sad news but Ubuntu Tweak developer has decided to stop the development of Ubuntu Tweak. Tualatrix Chou writes in a blog post:

" I want to stop the development and maintenance of Ubuntu Tweak. This means you will not be able to use “Apps” (Since it is a web service), I will not response for the bug report, the last commit of the code will be: Add cache support for Apps, only available in Ubuntu 12.10, so sad".

While the developer writes the reason as If making free software is not free any more, why still doing this?, I found the whole post quite cryptic.

One of his friend mentions that Ubuntu Tweak, though being a great app has not been included in the official source which is a really depressing thing.
