I'm interested in what people know on the "scoop" for comments and opinions
on webMathematica. Also, does anyone know if there is a user group?

The basis of my question is as follows. I have been using the product for
about 6 months now, and I'm getting a lot of high mileage out of and give it
a 5-star rating. Nevertheless, it's based on Mathematica V5.2 (i.e., the
webMathematica product from Wolfram does not support a higher version), and
the "new" webMathematica that should support higher versions now seems
several years delayed.

Do I make the correct inference that webMathematica did not turn out to have
as wide an appeal as Wolfram had hoped for and that it is almost in the
category of discontinued product?

Or on the flip side is there a vibrant community out there that I can join?
Google hits seem to turn up only the Wolfram site, again leading to my
inference that the product did not turn out in the "success" category for
Wolfram. Does anyone know why?

Any more comments, opinions, or knowledge on the history and context of
webMathematica?
