I just looked the project page and it seems Plume Creator has been abandoned. No updates in almost six years, uses outdated 32-bit libraries, and the Web site belongs to some commercial entity unrelated to fiction writing. 🙁
Yes, it does seem that Plume is no longer developed. Not uncommon. But there’s always the chance that someone will take on the project.
