obsolete software?

I don't know what was the case while Nick was making this video, but now the optimization software ( https://github.com/svg/svgo-gui )is marked as obsolete and discouraged to use. Should I use still use it?

Thanks in advance.

Web services are more reliable and easier to use for small things like this.

Typically when a developer marks software as obsolete they are no longer supporting it (see deprecated methods in Java). If there is a new version of the software, switch to the new version
