Will the Event Calendar be updated for 1.9+?

Hi, first post so apologies if this isn't the right place or this is a stupid question. 

I've searched on here, github and google but I can't seem to see a version of event_calendar which will work with Elgg 1.9 and above. 

I would like to add events to group and it looks like event_calendar is the best candidate. Are there any others? (Free or commercial)

I'm new to elgg and would like to avoid having to update the plugin myself (I'm also not a PHP dev so any pull requests would probably be garbage) but I will if that's the only option.
