If you look at bsfilter you will see that its last release was
also almost 2 years ago (2010-11-20).

Though it is low-traffic the bogofilter mailing list is still active
and both David and/or Matthias (the lead developers) participate.

I have been using bogofilter with claws-mail looong before there was
even a plugin for it.

If you are dissatisfied with the how bogofilter is performing on your
system its settings can be changed/tweaked by usage of bogotune,
bogoutil, etc.; and/or by editing the values in bogofilter.cf.
But do take the time to browse the bogofilter man pages.

Personally I am happy with bogofilter and will continue to use it.
