Was I ranting? I don't recall that.
I understand entirely that third party vendors can only react to changes made by Adobe. That knowledge has been gained from having 15+ years experience working with Macromedia, Adobe, WebAssist and, more recently, DMX Zone.
When DWCC2015 was launched we asked how we should best install the WebAssist extensions which, much like when DWCC2014.1 was launched, stopped working. The advice we were given was the wrong advice and that has cost us many hours in failed installation / uninstallation / reinstallation attempts. THAT'S the disappointing part, which I think is pretty clear in my previous posts.
