Product Updates

I am a longstanding customer (I started with eCart 4 in 2007 and bought the full suite shortly afterwards) and WA advocate.
I have used the forums extensively in the past, and have received, (and hopefully given) a lot of useful tips and advice.
I must admit though, I am at a bit of a crossroads, and wanted to air my frustrations.

Web design is moving on at a furious pace, and some of the WA tools need updating, or I will need to find alternatives

I am happy with eCart 6, Framework builder and MySQLi server behaviors, I use them quite a lot

Security Assist and Power CMS I use, though they desperately need updating to MySQLi.
I love the access groups, rules and pages in security assist (SA), and although it is possible to do some authentication with MySQLi Server Behaviors,
it is not as versatile as SA. At the moment I have to employ both MySQL and MySQLi connections to give me the flexibility I need, which kind of defeats much of the benefit of having MySQLi.

I like some aspects of PowerCMS, but not a fan the admin interface, which is a shame, as I have tended to use a PowerCMS installation as the start point for my site admin
I would love it if the interface was responsive, had styling options (and jQuery was used instead of mooTools), and used MySQLi.

I no longer use any of the WA CSS tools

So I guess my question(s) is

Are there any updates pending for SA and PowerCMS, or failing that, are there any tutorials/guides in giving the functionality I need ?
