Depends on how you define 'dead'. I discussed this with jdub some time 
ago and the idea was to import the Xfld packages into Ubuntu (which was 
done for hoary), and then release a Xubu distribution ala Kubuntu based 
on the packages and the Ubuntu core. Maybe there'll also be another Xfld 
release, but that'll be based on Xubu then. Anyways, new Xfld releases 
will only happen for major Xfce releases, as minor releases are only 
bugfix releases.
