Yes, but Log-On Software <http://www.log-on.com> has purchased it and will be supporting (and enhancing) it henceforth, rebranded as Log-On APL2. Existing customers must renew their contracts with Log-On before IBM's end-of-support in September if they wish to continue getting their support.

I find IBM's withdrawal from the APL market rather sad not least because it laid the standards to which second generation APL interpreters comply [1]. It becomes the second vendor to do so (after MicroAPL) in recent years.

Log-On aims to support APL2 but it has neither the pedigree nor the financial clout that IBM does; as a consequence, I believe the APL2 user base will shrink.

[1] APL+Win & APLX out of the box & Dyalog subject to configuration.

Yes, any APL stagnation or withdrawal from the market is unhappy news, and I hope it doesn't get any worse than it already is.
