The modules in pending have various quality levels.
Modules will be promoted in geotoolkit when they will have :
- complete javadoc
- complete tests
- code review from martin

All modules in pending can be used, they all work but the api may change
with time, we do not keep for a very long time deprecated methods in 
The reason behind this choice is all the related sub-projects : 
puzzle-gis, constellation,
mapfaces, mdweb. All the "neutral" code is merged in pending : parsers, 
utilities, bindings,
widgets... As a result sub projects are getting smaller and have greater 
puzzle-gis is a good exemple, it has only ~25.000 code lines and focuses 
only on the platform
integration part.
Merging all thoses different needs takes time, and geotoolkit is still 

In any case I think you can use pending, no big api changes happened in 
the last months,
we can say it's stable.
