My understanding was that JBoss 7.1.1 was the latest "released" version and Wildly was considered beta. Are bug fixes still be applied to the JBoss AS 7.x line? Is there any interest in applying fixes in the development versions to the older release versions?
As AS7 is an outdated community version there will be no bugfixes made here. All fixes in a community edition will go to upstream.
The github repository is used for further wildfly development.
EAP, which is based on AS7, is different. Here you get fixes if you have a subscription.
No the latest release is is WildFly 8.0, so you should move to that.

Just small correction, latest release is WildFly 8.2.0.Final
and wildfly 8 is just renamed "jboss as" project, that is also why it has version 8 as "first version".
Only big difference between wildfly 8 and AS7 is that wildfly 8 is java EE7 certified where AS7 is EE6 certified.
