You might be interested in arm [1].

Depends on what you call "end of development". Vidalia has no
maintainer, no one is working on it, fixing stuff, etc. That's why it is
no longer shipped with Tor.

I assume that if someone would be stepping up to work on Vidalia again,
there would be official releases again, even though they might not be
bundled with Tor anymore.

Someone could fork Vidalias' code and create his/her own Tor monitor.
Since it is open source others can use it.

So development has not ended ultimately, there is just no development in
this regard at the moment.

I'm unaware if Vidalia is still operational in its current state.
