Default Why no 4.3 TW ROMs?

Just curious why there was or are no 4.3 touchwiz ROMs and also why stock 4.3 wasnt available to flash earlier? I am a very active flasher and was very surprised to see the 4.3 update to be nothing like anything I have flashed before. THanks

Verizon just released the OTA a few days ago and the only dev who still works on TW ROMs(at least that I know of), bricked his S3.

In the past, we have received leaks of OTAs and other unreleased builds from certain XDA members, but it seems they have moved on to other devices. Also most of the TW devs have moved on as well.

AOSP is booming, however.
Current Phone: Samsung Galaxy S III
Current ROM: SlimKat

Previous Phone: Samsung Droid Charge (sold)

Yup, a combo of devs moving on to newer devices and the security in this new update is pretty intense. I'm sure it'll happen but resist the urge to install the OTA and forever lockdown your phone.
