Yah, Boba Fett has been a topic of discussion for a while. While there is really no official book or movie that states he is alive, George Lucas has said in an interview that Fett escaped the pit. Whether or not we can still consider that as part of the new Disney universe I am not 100% sure. But, since they are doing a spinoff movie of Boba Fett I can assume that he's not dead yet.
If he isn't alive while the events of the new trilogy are taking place, I'd love to at least see some Mandalorians in the film trilogy. Maybe some ex-Death Watch members who aren't really accepted anywhere else, or members of Clan Vizsla (in Mandalorian culture, the primary rebelling clan was Vizsla, and they make up the bulk of the Death Watch and are pretty much exiled).

I think it would be a bad fit in the new trilogy, because consider it this way. He was roughly 35, in ESB. and this new trilogy is 30 years later. So he's an old, old man now. Maybe we see him find a sort of, Han Solo role, where he's the old bounty hunter who never grew up. But honestly I only see him in there as maybe a reference, or the cynical crazed maniac the new characters dont want to become. I don't know though.
I actually agree with Randmfrongmans. I don't think we really need to see Boba showing up again, especially since the main person he wants revenge on is dead. I think they will most likely introduce new bounty hunters or focus on some of the other ones that didn't get much screen time.
