Autumn Leaves map creator, Tenshi, has been working on some changes to AL which are going live in the most updated version 2.0.
While w3c ladder is still using the older version of AL it has been said on w3c discord that AL will be updated to version 2.0 with the new ladder season. Furthermore, Dreamhack has posted on twitter that they will be removing the old version of Autumn Leaves and putting Autumn Leaves 2.0 into the map pool for its upcoming games.
So it looks like AL 2.0 is here to stay!

B2W has reported on twitter that Tenshi made changes to “prevent lame on the middle expo, Nerf Keeper a bit via purge creep next to the base (esp. vs. Orc), Side Expo a little easier, Outside greenspots more rewarding, less item sniping in the middle”
