Default [Q] Will CM work with new partitions post HTC RUU 2013

You guys have any idea if CM will start making nightlies and roms in general for Jewel post RUU that HTC officially launched for Android 4.3 and Sense 5?

I am aware that using the RUU on the device will update radios, bootloader, etc and partitions. The existing CMs (I have tried nightlies) don't flash because of different partitions.

GoblinZ, here on XDA, uploads the nightlies for CM with the modified partitions and this leads me to my second question. Every time I flash one of his roms of CM (unofficial) does that mean if I want to update then I need to factory reset and install rom from recovery? I cannot use the CM updater in the settings menu because it is unofficial right?

Whoever can help, thanks very much! I am new but feel welcome!

Updater will not work because unofficial right. CM will probably not be doing official with new partitions.

That means that any time I want to update from your nightlies, I would have to factory reset and loose my phone data? Thanks

In order to go from that new format CM I built to an official cyanogenmod build on the old format, you would need an RUU to go back to the old format...this alone would require a clean flash (ie you would lose your data). I built this as a stop gap for people who would like to still use an updated CM on the new format.
