No, i don't think that the vpopmail development is on a halt, i think
that it's the opposite: vpopmail dev was stopped on v5.2.x version when
was developed only by inter7, since Tom Collins has joined (or better:
maintaned) the development vpopmail has get a big sprint.

I don't think that the problem is vpopmail, the problem is qmail:
after 6 years since 1.03 version there's no modific to the original
version, now you always need addictional feature like antivirus
integration, more spam filters, a lot of other things... this lead to a
patch-over-patch phenomenon that is an headace for the qmail
So you need a toaster like netqmail-1.05 + bill shupp patches, but
sometimes this is not enoght. On the other hand postfix is active
developed even on the core.
So i think that the problem of qmail is its license and it's author's
