podofo is still very actively developed with an 0.8.2 release recently. 
That said podofo as a library and pdf editor if focused on very low 
level. E.g there is no visual editor at the moment, but the thought is 
it could do that in the future with a GUI app.

For openSUSE users, I have packaged podofo rpms in the graphics 
repository. I expect that podofo will be included in the default 
distribution for 11.4

As well, I have podofo packaged for most rpm based distributions in my 
repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs/
