It's no longer updated and has fallen behind. Some may say that 
Purr-Data has picked up where extended has stalled.

That's the correct thing to do.

Deken (the external manager you have used through 'Find externals') 
should have asked you if you want to add Gem to the search paths. Did 
you say no to that? Of so, add the path manually in Preferences->Paths. 
Did you restart Pd?

Open a new patch, make an Object [Gem] and keep an eye on the Pd window 
console. Then try the examples.
