New SRAM 10 = End of Grip Shift???

Interesting to see the info about the new SRAM 10 rolling into the gruppos below XX.

As a long time - and very happy - user of X.0 GripShift, I couldn't help but notice that each of the groupsets only had trigger shifters.

Does anyone out there know if that means that SRAM is no longer going to make and support Gripshift? Hope not - I can't stand trigger shifters, be they SRAM's or Shimano ...
 
I have X.0 Gripsh!t on my ride, too. Dead simple and light. It is also clean looking compared to levers sticking out of trigger shifters.

It does look like they are abandoning one of the products that built the company as they become a Shimano clone.

I have GripShift on my commuter bike, i'ts a very old version but it is still going strong. It is very simple and clean looking, very few moving parts, springs or bolts.
Which other manufacturer makes Grip shifters?

I switched to GripShift on my MTB because my left thumb is not able to move those trigger shifters. When I had 8 speed on my tri-bike I had grip shift on my aero bars. I was disappointed when I changed to 9 speed that it was not available.
