Maintenance Status

This project is maintained, but with limited capacity. Working on this is takes a lot of time and testing since all banks do things differently and once you move a part here, you break an unexpected one over there. Therefore: Bugs will only be fixed by me if they occur with a bank where I have an account. New features will only be developed if I need them. PRs will be merged if they either have a very low risk of breaking things elsewhere (e.g. purely adding new commands) or if I can test them. In any case, things might take a little time until I have the bandwidth to focus on them. Sorry about that :(
