I think that impression is a bit misleading. PDP afaik is not based on
PacketForth, rather PF is the "next generation" of PDP, with both a
standalone Forth interpreter and a Pd embedding thereof. PDP is still
maintained, so there will be bugfixes for changes in Pd and other
libraries etc, but I imagine there won't be many new features.
"Active projects include Packet Forth"
"PDP temporarily on hold"
