RedHat will continue to support the RichFaces runtime, but stop investing in RichFaces 5:
"...With these trends in mind, we’ve decided that moving forward we will pursue a path of stability with our JSF approach, rather than a path of innovation. We will continue to track the JSF spec with our RichFaces components and address compatibility issues with new browsers. Applications currently running with RichFaces 4 can continue to do so with an assurance of stability. With this goal in mind we are focusing on delivering a RichFaces 4.5 release, rather than the previously planned RichFaces 5..."
