Yup. If you were paying attention, you'd know MAME's schedule went weird last year because of the recently announced Windows 8 ARM port
As for the step-down, Aaron told the devs why, but he hasn't said in public so I'm not going to either. Suffice it to say it's something extremely awesome for him personally, and not due to anything bad about MAME.
