- Gunnar von Boehn and Christoph Hoehne have located the source of the Amiga 500 bug referenced the previous month. This problem is now resolved.
- Vampire V4 cards will be shipped to beta testers.
- Henryk Richter has scheduled new versions of the SDNet and ExpNetV2 drivers (SANA-II management, better performance, better stability).
- The release of the Gold3 heart has been confirmed for the summer of 2018.
- The Vampire card registration site will close at the end of June 2018 (it was too much work, besides the fact that the European law on personal data should apply to this site).

v4 is announced first for V500 and Standalone.

However, as you do understand, its a whole Vamp  generation and V1200 and V3000/4000 as well as V600 and even CD32 one should come after, as it becomes matter of connectors and probably a bit  of core tweak.

We are not there yet, as GOLD3 core needed for V4 500 and Standalone to do  their magic, is not  done yet. And then v4 is not production ready in any form.

So my lucky guess  is will be - this time next year (c) Fools and Horses.

But for  real. Its been delayed, but its obvious lot  of effort is put into it.

Over the years, A1200 connector situation has gone through some different "phases". I guess it is solved now, but news about the V1200 are few and far between.
I guess the manufacturing situation is as it is and there are still backlogs on A500 orders which need to be adressed first and standalone V4 has higher priority also.

Regarding V3000/V4000 and CD32, I can't recall any actual promises from the devs?

  V4 Announcement letter as in PDF contains only A1200 mention.
 
  However, discussions back and forth in this forum bring some hope this is planned.

  We plan several new cards for this year.
  The standalones are done and under internal testings.
  A4000 card will come after V1200

    Finishing all the preordered V600 boards made all other Kipper projects on hold. ( That and getting his hand operated )
 
    Maybe he will have more time to tinker when demand is met.
    A Vampire CD32 version is not yet even started to my knowledge.
    But surly possible in the future.

    To answer some questions:
 
  - The Vampire4 is a system this will come out for many AMIGA models.
    (standalone, A500, A2000, A1200, CD32, A3000/4000)
