I'm the main developer of the ZoneAdmin project...unfortunatly I didn't have the time in the past few months to push the development further ahead as I was quite busy with my regular work. I definetly look forward to do some serious coding/enhancement in the near feature (maybe sometime around the 
upcoming holidays) and to release another beta version. Since a lot of you guys also use other pdns backends (than the generic mysql one) one of the next "larger" changes will be to switch to a database abstraction layer to allow at least managing of more than just one backend. Other hints/requests 
are welcome - currently I'm working on a (rather simple) plugin interface which allows you to insert custom "actions" before/after updating/adding/deleting records/zones (e.g. mail notifications, automatic adding of reverse records etc.).

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / with kind regards
