There are no plans to get rid of it. we are a small company and have 4 products. vbgallery was worked on then pro went into beta and we released version 8. I am working on classifieds and Michael and I are both working on mobile support in pp8 some more and then I think he will turn his attention to vbGallery.
Pro has always been better than vbgallery that is my opinion and you can switch anytime you wish that is as always personal choice.
