Maybe... But if you look for stable releases here:

http://www.pygame.org/download.shtml

You'll find the top option: 1.9.1 Packages (August 6th 2009)


And then previous releases is just below 1.9.1:

pygame-1.9.0release.tar.gz ~ 1.4M - August 1, 2009
pygame-1.8.1release.tar.gz ~ 1.4M - July 30, 2008
pygame-1.8.0release.tar.gz ~ 1.4M - March 29, 2008
pygame-1.7.1release.tar.gz ~ 1.3M - August 16, 2005
1.7.0 ~ no source release was made.

Back to year 2000...

Maybe they should get a grip on themselves and distribute a new stable 
releases in year 2013 - then it would at least SEEM to look as the 
project is not dead. But in any case, I'm happy with it - haven't 
experienced any big issues with pygame yet, so don't take this as I 
don't value what they do. Maybe they've made a great version back in 
2009 and it's so good that there wasn't any need for a newer stable 
version before 2013.

But it gives the impression that nothing happens, when so many years 
pass on...

Anyway, thanks a lot to all...

(And sorry I accidentally replied privately to some of you - in 
thunderbird I should hit the "followup"-button but maybe they've removed 
it and instead I keep on hitting "reply" - very confusing that the first 
button in thunderbird is reply instead of followup, which is what I 
always prefer to use (so other people can see the answers).

Thanks you for pointing out that (at least) something did happen on 
2012-12-29, when it looks a bit dead on the official homepage.
