There was quite a long lull in the jailbreaking scene after the release of iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, until recently when the evad3rs team released evasi0n, the first untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices running iOS 6.
The prolonged lull gave rise to fears that jailbreaking was dead, and these fears continue to exist as Apple continues to make iOS more secure version-over-version.
