I think it has more to do with the nature of AVR type projects which is often/mostly hardware control.
In my case, if I get a project working (hard- and software), I will leave it alone. (mostly robotica and miniature railway control, I have a huge set of Jouef, the base dating from Christmas 1961 (1962 catalogue), when I was three years old.)
In my case, I only do one or two projects a year.
Maybe that goes for many programmers.

The point is that even the users use the AVR compiler sporadically. So therefor feedback is also sporadically.
Can that be the case?

Or one-off industrial hacks and so on.

If your choice is AVR (ATmega, ATtiny) then the only free, non-limited Pascal compiler might be FreePascal
No. For quite some time E-Lab's AvrCo Multitasking Pascal is free and unlimited, and still a better option for AVR then FPC.

Yes, and development is not stopped. However, online debugging is available only with original debugger/programmer which just old users have - but you can flash hex file with any other AVR programmer.
