Not in general. zope.app.form was the initial implementation. After that we noticed that this is not flexible enough. Zope corp developed a new form framework zope.fromlib which improved many things. Later we developed based on the great experiences in zope.formlib the z3c.form package. This work was driven from a project which Stephan and I where working on. We needed many additional hooks which we didn't had in zope.formlib. Because we did some crazy things like wizards, we're using session as a context and implemented persistent question/answer objects etc. btw, this project is still using zope.formlib! But it whould be much simpler to do it with z3c.form. Now we have 3 different form frameworks available. Every of this framework has it's own goodies and edges. But I whould not say that one is better then the other. I also think none of them will go away or get replaced by another one in the near future. Just feel free to pickup the one which will fit for you. Of corse I whould recommend z3c.form but probably I'm not the right person to give a recommendation.
