it is not. why do you think it is?
most likely the next release of Pd-extended (if that ever happens)
will be based on whatever Pd-version is current then.

like in the original question: yes, for *most* externals this will be
possible. Pd (and PdX) has a pretty stable API/ABI (i'm saying *most*
because you never know; but i expect all externals to keep working).

actually, i don't.

i'm an outsider to Pd-extended, so i'm not authorized to answer this.
however, my unauthorized answer is:
the "to do list" of the pd-extended agenda is the same as the todo
list of the one *single* person who only ever pushed the development
of PdX. and this person is currently occupied with earning money to
feed their family, so PdX-development has become a minor priority.
i guess that Pd-extended development never paid very well.
