Au contraire - SuperCard is alive and well.
Here's an overview of new features in v4.7:
Integration with QuickLook, Coverflow, Spotlight, and other OS services
like OS X's multi-lingual spelling checker are just a few of the 60 new
enhancements in this latest version, which also includes support for
these styled-text file formats: Word, WordML, HTML, webarchive, RTF,
RTFD, and PDF.
As an exclusively-Mac tool, SC does an arguably better job of providing
pixel-perfect object rendering per the Mac HIG.
While my clients' and customers' need for multi-platform deployment has
prevented me from using it for most of my work in recent years,
SuperCard remains an excellent tool for OS X and if I could afford to
deliver exclusively to that one platform I'd probably still be using it
today. But alas, I need to support the other 90% of the world too.
