New owners can make whatever business/technical decisions they choose including suspending communication/development/support. No capabilities were depreciated associated with the transition; product retains all features that were available when purchased. @Chainfire made no promises regarding perpetual development or support. In short, you got what you paid for. Do I like what is happening? Absolutely not! But there is nothing that "we" can so short of voting with our wallets should the new owners present another consumer offering for consideration. A two word rebuke immediately comes to mind.
Yea, I know they are not obligated to do anything but my opinion is that they could at least. Vast of devices are running with that root and it's kind of big deal considering safety and security of data. I see no issues with latest beta build so far, the SR5 runs great on my side but who can tell if it should be updated with security since then.
I suspect that they're using it for there own purposes but have no desire to continue supporting it externally. If you're worried about patches etc, or if it stops working, there's always Magisk. I made that move, reluctantly, when I moved to 8.1 - but it's working fine. I really liked SuperSU though.
