[Bioperl-l] advice about bioperl-ext -- defunct?

 I have just downloaded bioperl-ext from github, and it says "XS-based
BioPerl extensions to C libraries (defunct) — [
https://github.com/bioperl/bioperl-ext#readme]" . I read the readme but it
looks alive ( i.e. no mention of an ending of the project ). 

 I installed it ( adding "-fPIC" in the 3 Makefile.PLs ) and I'm about to
start using it. But, does is it still maintained? Is it still in use?
Recommended for a new project? I don't mind fixing compilation errors, but
maybe there is a new package that superseded it. Maybe I'm downloading it
from the wrong place.
