The nice thing about pathfinder 1 is that it's open source, so while Paizo may not be supporting it any longer anyone else is welcome to do so.

I really enjoyed GURPS with figs withHowl and his gaming crew. (Spotted his comment about it being best without them)

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd Pathfinder 2.0 - which they SWORE would never happen - hits next month.  It is different enough that the two full size bookshelves of Pathfinder I have are not compatible.

In thst case screw them.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

I've never played Pathfinder, but I understand it to be rooted in D&D 3.5

What are the new bells & whistles in the new pathfinder? How does it compare to D&D 5?

It doesn't.  It's Pathfinder 1 with all the complexity stripped out to add new and different complexity.
