Kindergarden ... All the cool kids boo libv.
It's the same GPU that's used in the latest SoCs Broadcom has released, which are still being developed and shipped in new products. It's a few years old and not high-end any more, but it still seems to be competitive at the middler/lower end of the performance/power/cost scale, so it's certainly not dead yet.

(And Samsung already announced Android 4.4 support for Galaxy Grand, so there's less motivation to port to that.)
