If you're interested in seeing what is planned for upcoming releases for the WebWorks SDK feel free to check out the updated Roadmap page up on github
As always, the disclaimer is that timelines and scope is subject to change

You can already do BIS and BES push with WebWorks. We are adding some more support to the push API so that it is easier to register with BIS push. Also adding features like being able to wake your app up when a push comes in

Push service caught my eye, is that going to require a BlackBerry bridge and/or BES?
Or are you talking about Push for PlayBook? We have the Push enhancements planned for the Smartphone side of things and nothing at the moment for PlayBook.

My apologies, I hadn't realized that this roadmap was for smartphone and tablet webworks SDK. Is there support for push applicaitons on the Playbook without a bridge?
Is the other WebWorks-TabletOS repo now deprecated in favour of this single repo?

The Roadmap is for everything to do with WebWorks.. Each one of the Releases has a description on which Platform it is targetting. Some of the releases are specific to Smartphones and others are specific to the PlayBook.
I've updated the headers to hopefully make it more clear.
At the moment there isn't any push support for PlayBook apps... bridge or no bridge
The WebWorks-TabletOS repo is source code only.. we have migrated our Wiki to the main "WebWorks" repo. Details on how we are starting to migrate our repos can be found here

I see no mention of any crypto APIs anywhere. Is this coming at some point in one way or another or do we have to bundle crypto APIs with all our projects?
Is it worth making requests in the tracker for things like sqlcipher?

Crypto APIs haven't found their way to the top of the priority list. Are there specific cases that you are looking to cover? On the BlackBerry Smartphone all HTML5 Databases are encrypted and HTTPS/SSL is supported for transmission/retrieval of data.
Are you looking to do some different types of file encryption or possibly encryption of text before transmitting?

By default the Playbook doesn't encrypt anything (no content protection), so I'm looking at how to encrypt the following:
- file stored in the filesystem, once the I/O API has been released
- localstorage and sqlite data
- text before sending it to the cloud for storage.
Based on this document:
it seems the tablet OS comes with what's needed to make it secure, it's just not enabled (filesystem) or available to all developers.
So, since native crypto APIs have not made it to the list, I'm guessing we'll have to wait for 2012 to be able to use them and in the meantime, we'll have to bundle our own libs. Correct?

I would have to talk to the AIR team to see if the have exposed those encryption capabilities in ActionScript
