It would appear that Ceton has moved on and good for them as WMC is a dead end long term, right?

Not sure why you or anyone over at TGB thinks this has anything to do with consumer WMC support, this sounds more like new business in the commercial line that they already have.

We won't know anything until they announce the future of the Echo, I think. They have said that they will continue to support it even though Android's dead but who knows if that means new firmware or not.

I view it as another line of business for them. No one would have said Microsoft was abandoning Windows when they started producing Office.

While I am sure that they are going to keep going with their Commercial (read: Hotel, Hospital, etc?) stuff the press release states, “As a company focused on creating the next-generation of consumer entertainment technologies..." and, "“Ceton is excited to join the AVnu Alliance and support our shared goals for the advancement of high-quality consumer audio and video networking,” So that sounds like a consumer based product to me. The press release also makes mention of their PC Tuners, "Ceton, the worldwide leader in digital cable tuner solutions for the PC and manufacturer of in-home digital entertainment and communication solutions." I am wondering if they are going to leverage their commercial software client for delivering DTCP-IP-protected content using InfiniTV Pro tuners into the consumer space and do away with using WMC once and for all by developing another PVR and client solution not tied to what MS does.

Well Office requires an OS of some sort and initially Office was only on Windows IIR. That said, I agree. They are going to go down a new line of business, maybe with some sort of PVR/streamer device as I postulated above but I am merely guessing what they are up to here.
