They're certainly leaving shortly

Someone on Reddit just posted a picture of a Jawa encounter yesterday. Real cute, the Jawa is falling over from a little kid's force-push (he's dressed as Vader).

So, is the rumor they're leaving dead or still in the works?

I would say this rumor is dead as BB8 has been out for a while now. @ssaamm clearly double down on this rumor and it didn't pay off. That's okay. People can be wrong and should not be ridiculed for it. But at this point even if the jawas left next week, it obviously did not have anything to do with the arrival of BB8 who has been out for some time now. So this rumor is dead.

^this. There was a very real chance the Jawas *might* have needed to leave. It was never locked in stone, but there was a concern that BB-8's line would be too long and fill up the Cantina constantly and it would be unsafe to have the Jawas roam in such a crowded environment. They also would have been an easy source of money to cut to offset the cost of BB-8 (adding him created 2 character performers and 2 character attendants and 2 photopass attendants that needed to be staffed open-to-close). Don't worry about what rumors didn't come to fruition, and instead be glad that BB-8's line is never terribly long and they didn't use it as an excuse to cut spending.
