As Snow Leopard is now five years old, it is coming to EOL for updates. Crucial security updates would likely still be issued for a little while yet, and the company just updated iTunes for Snow Leopard and later the other day (Feb 26, to be precise) for compatibility reasons.

There's no "mystery" here -- Apple has a very long tradition of active support of OSes for three "generations" back or five years, whichever is longer. Looks to me as though that guideline is still in force, which means the OS will stop receiving updates of any kind (from Apple, anyway) by the end of the summer.
