I'm in the same
"No future updates are scheduled for the BB10 AIR SDK & runtime."
This needs a solution.
We were the first (and for a long time the only) developers on Playbook and ours were the first apps to be available on BB10....

If they open source the skin ANE, then some things can be fixed. The SDK can be reversed and any tightly bound items (e.g. non-AS3 hooks) can be replaced.
The other option is to allow captive runtime so apps can run the latest runtime without assistance from BB.
This is all technically possible, but BB has let so many people go and they are trying to just stay afloat, there is probably not too many resources that could be put on this.
Unless they allow the community to help (under an NDA) to open source the SDK/ANEs so that it can be used on BB and other platforms, there are not too many alternatives for BB development (that are also tightly bound to BB). And yes, WebWorks has potential, but that is another topic.

What are the major shortcomings on BB10 right now with regards to AIR 3.5??
Sorry I've been out of the loop. On the surface, it doesn't seem too bad, the only major features since then were Rectangular textures and 4k texture support for ATF.
We're looking at bringing our game over... don't need any UI controls, or text input support. But do need good sound network and rendering capabilities. Are those at least solid?
