It's already well below "active". All the development energy is
on 8.5.* and the 8.6alphas. Just an occasional bugfix backport
gets onto the 8.4 branch these days. Best you can say about 8.4.*
is that it's not quite dead yet.
Sometime during the 8.6 beta sequence, I will make a release of 8.4.20
to get the collected bug fixes out. That release will be marked "final"
and there will be no more TCT releases of Tcl 8.4.*.
It would not surprise me to see various redistributors of Tcl/Tk
continue offering bugfix maintenance of their repackagings. Check
with your supplier.
