Yes and yes. There are still plenty of option out there, though getting fewer.
There isn't really anything wrong with square taper; works just fine for most. Still have four bikes out of six running it, and have never had an issue in 20+ years of bike play.
Most problems that arise from running square taper are from boneheaded mechanic moves.
