Future plans for Robotlegs?
I have a flex app that I built in 2008 and am looking to potentially refactor it and use Robotlegs. Looking at other MVCs though, many have come and gone. What makes Robotlegs different?

This is a good question, but difficult to answer :)
Your concerns are understandable.
Since 2011, robotlegs' user base has been continuously shrinking. Many developers have moved to other platforms or projects. This seems to be the case for the creator of the framework, Shaun Smith, and almost all of the contributors, as well. Therefore, there are no plans for the future.
But, the framework is mature and stable. Even if there won't be new releases, the current framework's features are actually enough for building large applications with a high level of complexity.
The code for the framework is open source on github. This forum will be available to us for as long as we'll need it.
I'm using robotlegs in my long-running (years) projects (large desktop AIR applications) on a daily basis.
I won't try to convince or persuade you to use robotlegs. This is your decision and yours only!
I cannot give you any guarantee that robotlegs will last forever.
If you decide to use robotlegs, please let me know.
If you need help finding tutorials or examples or if you have questions that haven't been answered already in other threads, feel free to open a new discussion on this forum.
