As I said above I'm doing my best to keep you all informed on what we are doing, but I can't speak officially for how support will handle these issues because I'm not authorized to do so. If there are specific dates i.e. for new manufacturing I will make sure our support staff gets this info as soon as possible.
I already have a working sample of changes that will be used in new production which our main office is currently evaluating.
If you have any technical questions or concerns about this I'm happy to discuss here.
