From installation to workflow, docbasic is still prolific within Documentum. It may never be completely removed. Many customer solutions and workflows still depend on dmbasic where it would be difficult, and time consuming, to replace. So it's safe to assume the current scripts and processing will remain throughout the lifetime of the D7.x codeline.
In the future, we may adopt a new EBS interpreter or add support for other scripting languages as core components evolve.
It is exciting to see the interest in the upcoming Documentum 7.1 Developer Edition. An announcement on availability will be made soon. I'll repost it here when it breaks.

Patrick Walsh: How soon is 'soon'? Was announced for end of January, postponed to end of February and now...?
If you mean the developer edition, in this case I think soon means "when it's ready". The image "leaked" late february works just fine, however it was only the content server, we have no idea about the current state of the xCP stack running on that env. I wouldn't expect it before May - June.
Yes, meant Developer Edition.
It was announced to be available in 3 flavours. The xCP stack being the last to be released. Didn't expect that because the xCP stack release depends on xCP 2.1 GA which was announced just a week ago or so.
I would make a difference if the first, just content server and REST was released.
If that is delayed to June, 'soon' is not the word I would have chosen...

As a workaround, not supported Dev Edition already exists. Checks Ingo Zitzmann blogs for example !
Julien, in my opinion, you have no idea what you're talking about:
The purpose of "Dev Edition" is share Documentum (or solution based on Documentum) with potential customers (or co-workers) without violating licenses.
