Probably, but parsers don't integrate themselves, Geany has to know
what information the parser produces. Somebody has to produce a pull
request doing that. Even if somebody provided a good pull request its
unlikely that it would be accepted with release only a week and a bit
away. Even the latest update to Scintilla looks like it won't be
included before release.
Whoever makes the pull request should take their time do a good job
and target the next release around mid year.

What do you mean by "active"?

Well strictly it doesn't matter, but Geany has to know what types of
symbols a language produces. And as noted above thats usually part of
incorporating a parser, so in practice no parser means no tags usage.
