Now that there's an updated jQuery course, is this course also going to be updated/replaced soon?

I read and hear vanilla JS is good enough for DOM traversals/manipulations. Not sure about AJAX. Wasn't Jquery created to make life simpler? I tried vanilla JS for the DOM, but all the code does feel longer. Why are people moving away from Jquery since it's hard for me to see the benefits of Vanilla JS or what other tech are people replacing Jquery with?
