Yes, it's actively used and maintained (although it's certainly a
"minority" shell at present).

Please see my web site for pointers to the latest releases, the mailing
list, and so on.

>If you use it - let me know where I could find some sample programs.

There are some small examples in the EXAMPLES file in the distribution,
and also in Tom Duff's paper, referenced from the web site above.

>Also - how do you use editline? Do I have to recompile the shell?

Yes.  See the INSTALL file in the distribution for details.

>Is there any way to get aliases with rc?

For what C shell calls aliases, simply define a function.

    fn l { ls -FC $* }
