Seaching for ConTeXt tutorials and documentation I mostly found unfinished books older than 5 years, yet the last stable release was in 2015 and it seems widely used.

Is this the intended state? I know that ConTeXt is aimed at commercial users so online documentation might not be a priority; or maybe is it that in the last decade ConTeXt remained so stable and backward compatible that those tutorial are still valid despite the age?

    Since the development of LuaTeX and ConTeXt is tightly coupled, you could probably judge (approximately, at least) the state of the one from the state of the other. – jon Jan 25 '17 at 15:40

    I think ConTeXt is more active than LaTeX3 ever was (mainly because it is driven by commercial demands). – Henri Menke Jan 25 '17 at 17:10
