Just in case you're interested in something you didn't mention, and which is:

  • NOT paid.
  • ALSO completely open-source.
  • NOT dead.

Have a look at ERPAL for Service Providers, which is a "distribution" using Drupal (version 7). Some more details (from its project page):

ERPAL is a centralized and web based business management distribution for software developers and service providers. It enables you to manage business processes with ONE smart toolbox that includes all the following features out of the box:

  • CRM (contact and activity management)

  • Document management and document creation
  • Contract management with recurring invoices
  • Employee management (overtime, holidays, costs)
  • Invoice creation and PDF export
  • Calendars
  • ...and many other features

ERPAL's goal is to have ONE TOOL to consolidate all the different business processes to reduce the time you spend with administration and project controlling. The ERPAL system enables you to manage all your everyday business tasks in one integrated smart solution.
