Future of Homegear? (wiringpi is depricated)

I wrote a question yesterday, because I had problems installing HG via openhabian-config. As I know now, it’s because wiringpi is depricated. As homegear depends on wiringpi, my question is what is going on with HG in the future? Is it still maintained?
Should we throw away our hardware (in my case lots of max! devices) and switch to Zigbee??
Thanks for any hints,
