that passes the trip test. Under this assumption TeX is dead by definition.
However in a broader sense TeX is still actively developed, but it may not
be called just 'TeX' because these new versions contain extensions. So
they get new names with 'tex' being part of their name. PdfTeX and LuaTeX
are new versions that are being developed right now.
