It is my optimistic interpretation that they are going to take a really close look at what's left in their open submission stable before the system is shut down.
I had two in evaluating - the first is at 31 days now - and they're still there. It got 2 more downloads this week, for a total of 4 now, and the other got 1 to total 3. AS has the money to make either of these low- to Indie-level projects, and it makes sense to take a last glance.
So, good luck to all who still have stuff in the queue!
