I'm not in a position to know the details of the scope of work RunRev 
needs to perform for any given OS update.  Without such knowledge, I 
can't claim to know how much time is required to accommodate Apple's 
apparent disregard for backward compatibility.

It may be that the preview period Apple gives developers is indeed 
sufficient, and the folks at RunRev are just lying around on a Spanish 
beach drinking Mai Tais.

Or it may not (though FWIW recent correspondence from Kevin suggests 
that at least once person is currently in their offices).

I don't have enough detailed information about the scope of the task to 
know, and I don't believe anyone else here on this list does either.

My apologies for replying to your post to this user-to-user support 
list.  If you had meant to send your request to RunRev you may want to 
use support <at>
