[Videolib] Wherefore video?

Just out of curiosity, is this about the last year for feature films on vhs?
In doing my search among several large vendors (AEC, BT, Ingram), I kept
coming up empty for vhs titles of movies that were released in the last 2
years, had been on award lists, etc. I couldn't believe how many of these
titles I could not find? Are vhs feature films truly dead? I did do better
with the nonfiction vhs I want to order this year, but I wonder about that,
also. Has anyone stopped ordering vhs features and gone solely to dvd? And
people keep asking me what's the next format around the corner, besides
variations on the DVD format.
