Let me see if I can summarize to draw in everything from the last few exchanges

I'm already really happy to know that Stage3D will come to BB10. Amazing apps will come just by supporting it!
As for a new Open Source UI Framework built on top of Stage3D ... I guess it would be a bit of "internal competition" with the current AIR SDK which also has the Fuse UI components, no?
But I believe this new Stage3D UI framework can easily get as big and important as bbUI.js. Many of the Flash developers I know, myself included, are crazy about leveraging the power of Stage3D and all started exploring with Starling + Feathers. Some of us still dream of having a Stage3D based Flex framework (for some that's actually a nightmare...).
Anyway, thanks for all the good news and possible scenarios. I support a BB10 UI Framework based on Stage3D.
PS: I hope you guys are planning to provide support JPEGXR with the AIR Runtime.

Do you guys have any date already? I've been asking all around and all I got is that it is coming but no idea when. There's no change on the roadmap until September and it's really frustrating not to be able to use Stage3D in PlayBook and BB10 apps. If this continues I will have to switch to iOS and Android only. Very sad.

I don't need to know if Stage3D is coming April 1st or 2nd but I'd like to know if it will take weeks, months or years. With the speed until now I hope it will be sooner than BlackBerry 11 comes
BTW If AIR 3.2+ is not coming to Tablet OS, does it mean that PlayBook gets BB10 OS or that it won't get AIR 3.2+?

I was really excited for the stage3D update until I read this. Does this mean that the PlayBook OS Air version will be left as it is? If we want an app to be available in both devices would we have to develop a stage3D and a non stage3D version?

The PlayBook OS is not planned to recieve an upgrade to its AIR runtime. Any upgrade to AIR on PlayBook would be when it has support for BB10. The same holds true for the Android runtime update.
I know the next question... when will PlayBook get BB10... I don't have a date to give you. BlackBerry has not provided further details on timing.
