I've committed this to SVN since I also don't understand the reason
why the various compilation conditions were added to openexr_api.cpp.

I would say that it is actively maintained in the sense that
there are some developers who like using it and would like
to see it continue. Unfortunately, the developer who initiated
the CMake support vanished a couple of years ago, so there
isn't strong leadership in this area. As things are, changes
to the CMake system happen when either a committer sees a
problem that they can solve and fixes it (such as adding a
library dependency), or when non-committers such as yourself
submits a fix (thanks!).

As for updating the minimum required version needed, there
would need to be a compelling reason to do this -- is there
a newer feature in CMake that you need?
