The most recent version finally has the Object > Distribute menu added.
Now both Align and Distribute commands can be accessed via menu and have assigned keyboards shortcuts to them.
The order of the commands though seemingly matches the one the panel has: horizontal first for Align and vertical first for Distribute. If you find this odd and want to change it — vote here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/45855823-sync-the-order-of-align-and-distribute-menu-comman
Also, Align To and Distribute Spacing commands are still missing in top menus, so please keep voting here to make them added too.

It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.
I think the best option for this is to implement the keyboard shortcuts that are already used for this exact feature in Adobe XD!
CMD, CTRL, arrows (mac)
CTRL, shift, arrows (pc)
Up aligns top, down aligns bottom, left aligns left, right aligns right.
CMD, CTRL M (mac) / shift M (pc)
Align horizontally (m for middle)
CMD, VTRL C (mac) / shift C (pc)
Align vertically (c for centre)
CMD, CTRL, V (mac) / CTRL, shift V (pc) Distribute vertically
CMD, CTRL, H (mac) / CTRL, shift H (pc) Distribute horizontally
