Yes, it's up-to-date as of today with Inyi.
For any new folks with conlangs they'd like to list, check out the Census and send me a PM & I'll update the list!
If we stuff the whole chicken back into the egg, will all our problems go away?

I usually give the phonemic inventory some time to ripe and leave it relatively unchanged thereafter (that is, from a deus-ex-machine perspective; I still let it develop from Old X
to Modern X
, as I do with Southern Wínlandisc and Buonavallese).
Of course, the morphology/syntax does change, even at the same stage of a conlang, and then I don't change the old post just for the sake of updating it – I'll leave it as is (or add the updated version below the original), because then others can see how much work it was to get to the present state of the conlang in question.
And as you may have guessed, piecing together a phonemic inventory for a diachronically derived/evolving language is really a multi-step undertaking.

I'd say it took two or three years from me first starting to make languages seriously to actually creating a reasonably good one. But it may well be possible to move faster than that. A lot of it comes with practice, and a lot of it comes with dedication - with not being content to stop at the basics but to press on creating more and more.
But there will always be more to learn. That first reasonably good conlang of mine was ten years ago, and I expect I could do a much better job now.
