So now the V4 is out there will you guys be doing any work on the V2 core? Perhaps bring core 3 in line with the V4 version? The current core 3 alpha is just that very alpha and I am sure you guys have made some progress since then!

From what Gunnar has told me, yes it is planned but they still have some work to do on the v4 (fixing bugs, getting Ethernet working, improved usb support).

But yeah there are plans to do it. Just a question of the team having time to go back to it.

Lets not worry about V4 and V2 parity yet.  Lets get all the V2 versions out In the wild.
  Need the A1200 V2 so bad.

Patience. There are things to fix v4 sa core, like USB and LAN, other card boot.

After v4 core gets public and ironed, I would expect gold3 for v2.

V2.12 final meanwhile.
