Cursory Review 2018: Active Development(Update 2018-01-07), active-ish community, spread out on many platforms/languages

MapTool is a ruleset agnostic virtual tabletop that targets a wide range of uses. It has features to support face to face, projected, over the internet, and play by post games. It supports ad hoc as well as planned encounters. The map space does not have a limit in size and can support very, very, very large maps. It has a very advanced fog of war that incorporates vision and light. But most importantly MapTool has a very active and friendly community, which drives the features and development forward. There is typically a new development release every two weeks.
