Our plans for language support involve adding more and more to the AOM for non-ACL programmers. We have no plans to "dump" ACL. As has been pointed out, we have lots of ACL in the installation tree and we don't see any gain in having to rewrite all of this code. We still add occasional new features using ACL. It is not dead, not even orphaned.

It is also equally true that you will not see as much new development in ACL coming out in new versions of our software as you have seen in the past. As our customer base has more and more people using the AOM for customization, we should be "eating our own dog food" if you know that phrase.
