I'm building a plugin that is strongly dependent on parsing feeds, rss2 
and others. What is the most widely supported loosely coupled library 

I have found:
SimplePie - however their website mentions they have stopped the project 
and it has moved to github....
MagpieRSS - yet there last release was in 2005-11-5....
Zend Library - maintained, however I don't need to use all of Zend and 
don't want to include the whole library when just using the reader 

What is the best option available and is most widely used among WordPress?
