No feedback??? WD staff has been very open and polite in this thread (as well as others).
Just because "I don't know. The firmware roadmap changes so often that I really can't say either way. I'm sorry I can't give you a better answer" wasn't the answer you were looking for doesn't mean that WD hasn't been paying attention and offering the best answers they can.
If WD doesn't know whether they'll ever update the Gen2, or whether they'll just give up and End-Of-Life it like the Gen1, then you can't expect any definite answers.
Don't forget, several further updates for the Gen1 were promised and "coming soon" before WD threw in the towel, so just because they're looking at things now, doesn't mean they will ever see the light of day. At least WD is being honest with the "I don't know" instead of making promises that ultimately never materialize.
