Define "official". It's been stated by high-level SAS employees at public forums. As far as I know, though, no details have been announced. It's won't happen for a while (several years, I would guess).
It's not SAS's intention to abandon AF and cause all the existing AF applications to stop working, but at some point the new system, whatever it turns out to be, will be the preferred environment for developing new applications.
I hope it doesn't require any of the products you mention - they're substantially more expensive than AF.

Is this a rumour? Has this been officially announced by SI? Are SI then
planning to concentrate on SAS/Intrnet, WebAF, WebEIS ?
