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"
