Is atheism maturing, leaving Dawkins behind?

So Martin Robbins hopes, at New Statesman:
Dawkins remains a powerful force in atheism for the time being. Increasingly though, his public output resembles that of a man desperately grasping for attention and relevance in a maturing community. A community more interested in the positive expression of humanism and secularism than in watching a rich and privileged man punching down at people denied his opportunities in life. That, ultimately, is the tragedy of Richard Dawkins – a man who knows the definition of everything and the meaning of nothing.
Maturing community? Well, what about Shermer’s cease-and-desist order against PZ Myers?
Oh, got it now. Mature audiences only.
