So far as I know, Michael is alive and kicking :)

He was testing his extensions with a beta version of J4 but was waiting to commit further in case API changes were made prior to J4's formal release.

Like other devs, he might need time to make J4 versions available. In the meantime, you could try the current versions on a test setup. It's what I will be doing over the coming week :)

Update:
I've tried the following RicheyWeb extensions:
1. AdminExile: plugin installs but enabling causes the site to error (the well-reported "isAdmin" error)
2. ByeByeGenerator: as above
3. Domain Restriction: as above
4. Email Authentication: as above
5. Hashcash: plugin installs and enabling doesn't cause the site to "barf". Might work, but haven't tested!

@JAVesey, just a quick FYI: even if you rewrite every occurrence of isAdmin() or isSite(), for that matter, AdminExile and ByeByeGenerator won't work. There are other issues that cause these things to not work.

Again, just as an aside, @SharkyKZ created a "generator remover" plugin. It may be worth having a look at it. 8)

Thank you for all of this information :)

That's a shame; I really like AdminExile and loads of users have it installed. However, there are other extensions that offer this functionality so I guess that's what I'm looking at, hopefully on a temporary basis :(

I'll check out @SharkyKZ's plugin 8)

I can live without the other other plugins, but Domain Restriction is really useful. I hope that Michael (@stutteringpoet) is able to update his extensions in due course :)
