What are the advantages of tinc VPN compared to than PiVPN (OpenVPN) and Wireguard?

It is a decentralised VPN implementation, hence not server-clients model but equal peers in a network that do not even need to be able to connect each to each.

My largest concerns in any case is that the last release is from 2019. There is a newer branch, but nearly no activity on it: https://github.com/gsliepen/tinc/commits/1.1

Generally I would like to support alternatives to the two big VPN implementations (OpenVPN and WireGuard), but exactly because those two are used so widely, they are very reliable and secure (in turns of quickly addressed CVEs). Any other implementation must at least show active development to make it worth IMO, as when using a VPN, one inherently assumes this being the most secure way to connect networks.

It's available as Debian package as well: https://packages.debian.org/buster/tinc
