For "simplicity" (should not be read as "for intuitiveness") it's
packaged together with tikz. So you would install with with

The last commit to the repository was at the end of January 2016 (see
https://sourceforge.net/p/pgfplots/code/ci/master/tree/), so I don't
believe the maintenance is the issue. But the cross-section of ConTeXt
users and pgfplots users might be a relatively small group.

Neither the main developer of ConTeX is using pgfplots not the
pgfplots developer uses ConTeXt, so problems only get discovered when
users report them. (And maybe we should set up some basic testing of
the modules on some server for early reporting of issues.)
